Its hard to say definitely but my thoughts are its from oil leaking from the overhead valve assy  as I posted earlier remove the valve cover and retoe=rque the 2 bolts that hold the overhad assy to the cylinder head and reinstall the valve cover and see if that makes any difference.

Looks like a head gasket to me. I bet if you take the tins off you will see some spooge in between the head and block where its leaking, if its been leaking long enough you will see carbon build up.

I would wonder if you have an issue with the valve guides. In any case you will have to dig in deeper to find out.

It looks like a crack is in the valve cover where the smoke is blowing out..  Look closely and you'll see it..  Clean the area up and repair it if I'm right..  

 

Other than that a bad head gasket / poor rings is my guess.  Perform a compression or leakdown test to evaluate the rings..  

 

Good Luck!

Seems to me the smoke is coming up in between the valve cover and the engine tin. I'd remove the engine tins before doing anything to get a good visual.

Partially remove some of the tins and saw that the gas exhaust is coming out in the connection of the head to the block. I'm always asking for advice before I mess with something that I've never worked on before thank you to all those who gave me advice

This is a relatively simple and satisfying repair. You'll need a torque wrench, though.
