53 Ford Street Rod

I have a 53 Ford Street Rod. All steel with PS, PB, vintage air, 350 SB, 350TH, Ford 9" 3.08 rear end.

The 350 SB is beginning to smoke, blue from one bank of cyllinders. Not a lot of smoke so far.

Should I rebuild the valve guides or overhaul the motor? I dont know how many miles are on the motor. I have put 10,000 in three years. I change the oil every three months.

What is the cost difference between a rebuild and a new crate engine? I am looking for a mild set up in the 290 hp range.

Pete

welcome Pete...........Best to ask your questions in the engine forum. You will get good advise there.

Sounds to me, if it is not burning oil, but just smoking on startup, that its the valve seals,
