Smokey Starts?

I have a '71 914-6 conversion with a '71 911E 2.2 with mechanical fuel injection. When the car sits for several days, especially on a hill, I get plumes of bluish smoke when I start the car. It takes approximately 5 minutes or so before the smoke disappears. What is the likely culprit?

With the 911 engines some smoke on start-up is pretty normal. B/c of the air and oil-cooled nature of the cars, the blue-smoke you describe is probably perfectly normal, particularly after the car has sat for several days. Five minutes may a bit long - my '67 911 used to emit a puff on start-up, but nothing prolonged. One thing you might want to check just for kicks are the oil-return tubes and valve covers - these frequently "seep" oil into the heat exchanges as the seals get old and wear out. This might give you some smoke until the oil burns out of the exhaist system...
