water out of the exhausts?

I have always wondered what really caused the exhaust to "slobber" out of the exhaust whenever it is warming up on idle,this With choke on and off.
I have always thought it was maybe too rich. I have my 350 idling at about 700 RPMs, timing at 6 - 8 degrees BTDC, and I have carburetor setting at the best vacuum, 18 to 20. (carburetor is Edelbrock 1401 Q-Jet)

Mine seems to slobber more than most.

I guess it doesn't hurt any thing but the exhaust tips.

I do not know if it can really be eliminated or not.

Any opinions?

Thumbs up Re: water out of the exhausts?

This is also common with the new injected motors.My everyday driver! will slobber out the tail pipe in the winter when I start it and let it sit to warm up. If I let it run long enough it will fill the pipes with water and when I take off it will leave a trail of water behind it.

A lot of manufacturers will drill small holes in the exhaust system so it will drain out. I guess Ford doesn't do that with the Crown Vic's.

Mine drips like a leaky faucet. As long as you aren't losing coolant, you should have no worries.
