If it's smoking on shut off (or over run) it's likely to be valve guide related, or possibly bore / ring related. But it could just be the fact that you've got freshly honed barrels etc? It may bed in.
Ref oil pressure, first things first, are you sure your gauge is good? If yes, most likely cause of poor pressure is a damaged or incorrectly installed crank oil seal. Second most likely is a dodgy oil pump. Both are a easy to get at without pulling the whole motor.
Hope it turns are relatively painless!

I have a nice condition T140D that could use some freshening up. Havent started her in two years. Thanks for the inspiration. Your Matisse is awesome and its progress was a great way to pass some time. Good luck with it. If you ever get a chance to weigh it, I'm curious of its weight and performance. Thanks
