Came home today. Shut the truck off. Restarted the truck to move it. The starter motor stayed engaged. Eventually got it to turn off. I restarted the truck and it was not good. Tons of smoke and ran rough. Shut it dow. 3rd start. it runs fine but smokes Blue smoke. Anyone ever see this before? I’ll dig into it tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone has had this little gem happen ?

I cant see how the dead starter would contribute to it. Blue smoke is oil burn from worn rings or worn valve guide seals.
I would check the blowby and have a look inside the cylinders for signs of oil. But 12HT and 2H always seem to have a thin plume of blue smoke at idle
Try a thicker oil.

I know it sounds weird. That’s why I posted. Took the truck for a drive and back to normal. No blow by either. I’ll tear into it tomorrow. Thanks for the reply
