Valve cover gaskets, valve stem seals and guides, possibly rings as well. Might have a gusher from the oil pressure sending unit.

you may want to do a compression test. with that many miles on a motor it may be burning oil. could possibly try using some of that oil additive that is suppose to help boost compression by cleaning things.
