Investigating Chevy 305 burning oil at idle

[[UPDATE: after wasting money on valve stem seals without fully investigating what the issue definitely was, i finally took off the right side valve cover which has NEVER been taken off..i found the the rear oil drain hole (theres 2, 1 in the front 1 in the back of the head) was plugged with fiber which is from the 10 year old air filter i had been using..so basically the ENTIRE valve cover was filling with oil force feeding oil into the cylinders. Goes to show, routine maintenance is not a joke..i figured an air filter is an air filter, but i guess not lol.After 10 minutes of idling the Exhaust will start making blue smoke and it looks kinda like "Uncle Buck" lol. It VERY rarely smokes when i drive, only when i take off.

Chevy 305 burning oil? [solved]
[[UPDATE: It was a $0 problem. I assumed it was bad valve stem seals, but i had never taken off the right side valve cover to fully investigate and bought the seals anyway. I took off the valve cover to find the rear oil drain hole (theres one in the front and back of the head) was clogged with what i think it fiber from a 10 year old air filter i had been using..Basically the valve cover would fill with oil forcing oil to find its way down into the cylindars. So after i unplugged it, no more smoke! Easy as that! ]] I knew it couldn't possibly be something as serious as piston rings..it only had 53,000 miles on it at the time.

EASY, HOW I LAPP & GRIND VALVES. THEY DONT TEACH THIS TRICK IN SCHOOL, ONLY OLDSKOOL.
Automotive technician since 1991 I show how I do a valve grinding job (Lapping Valves) at home using a vacuum hose, drill & compound, don't over think it and don't assume it cant be done. learn how and save money on your project with out taking your cylinder head to the machine shop. Valve guides must be in good shape ( with no significant play or bent Valves before you perform this task, but this procedure works very well if done with care & quality. Go get it! and God bless.

Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS
I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this 305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.

Fitting new valve guide seals without removing the cylinder head Suzuki Vitara
This is how you can remove and replace valve guide seals with the head still on the engine. Normally you have to have the head off so you can fit the valve spring compressor on to the head of the valve. I had heard of this method but never tried or seen it done before. The only special tool is a piece of string. Watch the video and see the "Essex Red Neck" at work :-)





Valve seal Replacement
Leaking valve seals cause your engine to smoke when you first start it up, and then it usually runs the rest of the day with no smoke. Usually replacing the valve seals will fix the problem. Here's how to do it. Of course other engines may vary to some degree but the basics are the same.
