Probably not. Try a compression check, that will prove the valve seats, pistons, rings and bores. After that I would suggest inlet manifold gasket or blocked breathers, at worst the valve stem seals if it's an oil problem.

But what colour is the smoke/steam?

Alfapat is in Elgin if you fancy a trip up there, PM him, he may take it on and he has me on speeddial 1.
