Default Engine Blow By Blues

My 60 T Bird 430 motor 105,000 original miles smokes
On a cold start the smoke trickles out the blow by tube. Once it begins to heat up the smoke starts to increase alot out of the blow by tube. Anybody experience this or have any possible solutions I sure would appreicate it.

Default blow

check the oil fill cap , most get plugged after 50 or so years with gunk. If the engine still forces smoke out the vent tube, is probably worn or stuck piston rings. Change the oil and filter, go run the hell out of it for about 30 miles. If it still does it, either re-ring, or go to 50W racing oil and some STP. I just overhauled mine. All it needed was rings, so I reused the bearings. Runs great, no smoke.

Brian I agree with Henry, once you have it warmed up, take her for a good long run and blow out all the gunk. My wife's Benz does that occasionally and the motor ( 450 SL) is made to run and gets clogged up, when it is only running around the city.
