EA82: I removed it, replaced head gaskets, and basically everything else. Returned it to the car and it wouldn't start. Traced the problem to a dead fuel pump, and this weekend finally got her to fire up.
Now,... a new problem. She runs fine for a few minutes then starts putting out clouds of white smoke... I searched in the internet and people say that she's must be burning oil (whitish-blue smoke - mine seems white), so I figured maybe she is burning off the assembly lube etc.
Then I was walking around the vehicle looking for a problem and there is a steady stream of oil coming down the driver's side, looks to be underneath the disty, maybe the valve cover gasket...
Any ideas... I replaced all seals/gaskets with OEM and torqued everything to spec. But this doesn't look good. Please send your thoughts. In the meantime, I'll be hoping I don't have to pull that engien again.

How about the reinforced o-ring between the head and camshaft tower? That oil passageway has high pressure and without the right o-ring, it will leak.
