dirtysocks asked:

is there a simple way to determine if the problem is my valve guide seals?

Good way that won't get you dirty................

Find a steep hill and drive down it on no throttle. At ther bottom, rev the engine.

If it then smokes blue, you've got valve seal/guide wear.

Blue smoke when you accelerate is more likely to be rings.
