motor

I have a small block chev 350 that i was ajusting the valves after i got done doing the valves i started the motor and it gave me a big puff of white smoke. I shut the motor off waited for a few hours started back up and it was fine until it got hot like 190 to 210. At ideal it is good until you give it some gas then it smokes light blue it smells like gas and oil need some help lol thank you

Was it doing this BEFORE you adjusted the valves? If not, then you got some too tight.

The Great White Puff Motor with a valve maladjustment promblem...

Why did you adjust the valves in the first place? How did you accomplish this feat?

Well, at least you didn't say anti-freeze. You didn't get any Ford dust in the carb did you?
