My 1941 Buick is spraying oil from the exhaust. It's a steady spray. The oil isn't pouring out of the exhaust but I am trying to determine where it's coming from and what to do about it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    Are you quite sure that isn't water + carbon from over-rich fuel mixture? Is it really oily to the touch?

    Any oil coming out the exhaust would have been burned in the engine's combustion chambers, unless you have one dead cylinder where no combustion takes place. In that case I suppose it's possible that a crack in a cylinder wall could pump actual oil into the exhaust system unburned.

    If you're "hitting on all 8" then I don't see how it could be oil coming out.

    It is oily to the touch. How would I know if all 8 were firing? Or better asked, how would I know if all 8 weren't firing?
