1985 GMC Sierra

So, whenever I drive my truck it smokes like crazy. It seems that oil is leaking from around the area of the exhaust manifold. I was wondering if anyone around here had any ideas for me, or point me in the right direction of somebody who might know.

Thanks for your time.

Does it look like maybe the valve cover gasket is leaking oil onto the (hot)exhaust manifold and smoking?
If so that may be a good DIY project (changing the gaskets)-depending on what engine is in there

I did that, and replaced the valve cover as well. Its still leaks and smokes.
