Hello fellows
I have one question about smoke from exhaust plug on b737 classic after engine shut down. Is it normal or not, i know that for NG it is ok. Thanks in advance. I can't find any references in maint docs.

Yes its pretty normal.
Look for oil leaks at th aft sump area this may cause some smoke.
Asl long as your oil consumption is within limits its ok to operate. But closely monitor the oil consumption to be on time if the leakage becomes bigger..
