So the issue, when cold the car isles and drives with no smoke, as soon as it’s warmed up it’s a little smokey at idle and when I initially accelerate I get a plume of smoke and it clears as the revs pick up.
It’s bluish white smoke and I think smells oily.
the Weber carb has only been set up as per the Weber instructions but it seems pretty good
I don’t suppose anyone has experienced anything similar or might offer some suggestions in the cause? I assumed ribgs but they seemed very good when doing a leak down test
Thanks in advance!

Check to colour condition of the spark plugs.
Are you using any oil?
How long ago did you replace the head gasket?
Did you clean out the rocker cover gauze, underneath the cover cover, if it gets blocked up it causes pressure build up and blow out of the exhaust.
