    i would run a leak down test, for grins start with #6,

    the smoke, if it is oil smoke, imo, valve guide or piston rings could be leaking

    Is it actually white,, or bluish,, or can it be steam? Does it leave a lingering smoke screen?

    White is usually water. Started right after you changed the gasket?
