Check the ball valve in your oil pump. After sitting so long it probably settled and sumped your bottom end. Drain your crankcase, refill oil tank with fresh oil, reset ball. Or you can just reset the ball and run it out. But it will be that way (smoking) for a while.

Something blocking your breather tube? What did you do to get it running? Did you have the nose cone off where the breather gear timing could have been messed up? You should feel a strong puff of air out the breather tube as the pistons descend on each stroke.

I'd double check oil line routing.

that line between the rocker boxes is the feed line from the rear cylinder cross over to the front. Make sure that your breather , oil line feed , oil line return, and oil line vent , are all routed properly, there is a thread on here somewhere that shows how they go on the or from the oil pump. Just to make sure. Good luck there bigfoot, shovels fuckin rock baby !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

check and see if you blocked off the breather port down by the oil pump you should have a hose comeing off the engine case that hangs down towards the ground

Sure sounded like a blocked breather. Glad you got it fixed up correctly.
