If you use the rope trick in the cylinders when you do this you can pop the spring and let the valve fall slightly down and shake it, if you feel excessive play no seal is going to stop the smoking. However, another thing that`s worth mentioning here is are you positive the intake sealed? If you can pull the carb and see oil in the plenum the intake didn`t seal. What intake gaskets did you use?
