One more question about my 1981 panther 4000

So many of you have all ready read about my panther 4000 and how I just installed a newly rebuilt engine, so I won’t Go over that again. However the oil pump wasn’t rebuilt, just cleaned, inspected and reinstalled. My question is that I’ve noticed when I start the engine up ( about once a week) that I notice excessive smoking until it warms up. I added about half a cup of oil to the gas and stirred it in before the initial start up. I was curious as to if the oil pump could be leaking into the block while sitting, causing some oil to get into the bottom end, which could be the culprit if my smoking. Is that possible?? If so , is there a gasket or o ring that I can replace to remedy that? Thanks and sorry for all the questions...
