Hi.  I'm worried about my rebuilt engine (72 Super Beetle Cabriolet) which was just installed.  A blue cloud of oil smoke is emitted when I start it up.  Could it be because it's very cold now, or because adjustments are required (valves? carb?) or is it a more serious problem with the new engine?

BTW, I've been a Superbeetles.com poster since 2007 but for some reason it didn't recognize my login and I had to re-register.

Is it happening every time you start up? Or only first thing? Who rebuilt the engine?
