Default oil in cylinders??

Just installed l67 motor. When it was on the engine stand I had it upsidedown for a day or two to install new oil pan gasket. I'm assuming that the a little left over oil seaped past the rings into the comb. chamber. Would this be a normal occurance for a motor left upsidedown? Upon first start up engine is smoking badly and now starts poorly(fouled plugs). What can I do to get oil out without changing plugs 10 times? Is there a better method?? Thanks for info!

That'* the way gravity works.....Just let it run for a while...it'll tak eabout 20 min for it all to burn out of there....Because it'* in the intake too I'm sure. So just let it run until it'* done smoking like cheech and chong and then change the plugs
