That's what I was thinking as well. For at least the first 100 hours after new or rebuild they should be run in the upper 50% of the power band to bed the rings in properly or you will start to get glazing and blow by.

The easiest way to check if any damage was done by the low oil pressure would be to get an oil test done. This may also help with getting a reading on your blue smoke issue,
