engine blow-by

I have a 1965 Rambler wagon that I put a 350 Chevy engine in. The motor runs well, but I have a lot of blow-by.(the heads are 1972 with a 1970 short block) I initially started with a pcv valve on one side and a breather on the other.I got a lot of oil seeping out the grommits and out the breather.Next I replaced the breather with a hose which I routed under the car by the lower ball joint to try and lessen the oil on the motor. When I drive the car and get on it even just a little bit I can see a large trail of blue smoke and the smell of oil is overwhelming. Would changing the breather to a PCV valve and tying it in with a tee to the other help any? I am currently using 20/50 oil, and I tried a can of restore to no avail. I am retired on disability and cannot afford any major repairs. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, stanjr41
