Default blowing smoke

I have a 461 BBC and I just had the heads sent off to have new valve guides because my car kept blowing a lot of blue smoke out of the passenger side header. I just got the heads back and it's still blowing smoke and the second tube on the header is getting about 100-200 hotter than the others. What could cause this and how do I go about Fixing it

Have you checked the rings? Almost sounds like oil is getting past them. Might also want to check the intake sealing, make sure it's not pulling oil from the intake valley, and lastly make sure all you rocker studs are sealed. Oil can get past the studs, especially on the intake and cause this condition. Most likely a ring issue though, from the sounds of things.
