Blue smoke

283cid engine
Sounds good, lotsa gogo
But it blows blue smoke out the tailpipe at startup and for the first 5-6miles
Would this be valves or rings?
Maybe a seal??

Thanx 4 any help.

Well, SBC motors tend to eat valve seals. They crack and leak over time. Generally when you see smoke just on startup its a valve seal. In your case I'm sure you need the seals, but that doesn't mean you don't need other things too. It might just be time for a rebuild.
