Question about Cars & Trucks
I am on the back road in Bolivia a valve or a guide????
I would say neither as constant oil smoke is a sign of oil ring failure or broken rings that have scored the bore.. Keep an eye on the oil level as oil smoke is not a good indication of consumption as a very small amount makes a lot of smoke.

You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.

you have bad valve seals again and it is possible that the valve guides are bad ( to much play ) i worked for Jaguar 13 years and i have done 100's of these and very few needed guides it sound like the seals where not done correctly at the last repair.
