Smokey starts

Most mornings when i start my Eb, after about 2-3 mins. of idling, it starts to blow heaps of blue smoke, its when i really gun it that it stops, but when driving slowly it takes about 3-4 mins to stop blowing smoke. What the **** is wrong with it?

i think its probabley the valve guide seals
if you are lucky you may be able to change them with the head on, which would make it cheap.

If my memory serves me right (Yeah right), light blue smoke is Valve seals, Dark Blue smoke is rings.
