If you run at low power, engine and exhaust will load up with oily goo which will then cook off when you go to high power. This should clear up in a few minutes as it burns off. Completely normal.

Low power could be clogging fuel filters??

If you have run 100hrs since the oil line problem, you most likely have suffered no damage. If engine sounds smooth and runs good up to 1500, and oil pressure is same as before, good chance it is ok.

Try running it above 1500, get it to where it is smoking, no need to go to full power, and leave it there for a few min. See if smoke clears. Abort if engine sounds rough or makes unusual noises.
