White smoke

I just put a new motorcraft 2100 in my 87 wrangler and now I am getting white smoke coming out of my valve cover breather. It is not much but it did not happen prior to my new carb. Any suggestions?

You sure it is white and not oil vapors??? Check it out it should be oil vapors. Cehck the top of the dipstick for some murky yellowish stuff and inside the valve cover at the PCV. If nothing but oil and no water what you are seeing is light oil vapors which will come from the breather to the carb to be burnt if everything is still hooked up stock if not yes out the breather.
