My 79 started spitting oil out of the exhaust obln start up and initial idle. Does not do this when its warm. Not burning oil, no smoke so atleast I don't think. Any ideas?

Are you sure it's oil and not water mixed with black soot? It's common to have condensation ejected from the exhaust on start-up. If you have a bunch of soot in your exhaust the water will be colored black.
