Hell in a hand basket

Hey all, Got one for ya. I have a K20 w/ a 350 bolted to a TH350 and of course a NP203 and I had a few problems hit me at wonce.

The biggest is the fact that I blow threw 3 quarts of oil every 2 weeks, with no black smoke at startup and a very rather dry oil pan.. im kinda wondering where its all going to be burning that fast.

And now the more involed question, some where along line of the last few months I devolped a knocking sound that is very noticable @ high RPMs but now I can start to hear it a little at start up. I can rev the engine and not hear the sound in Park and Netral, which leaves me to blame either my Trany or T-case any advice will help. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

First the obvious, is there a puddle of oil where you normally park? Or look underneath the truck and see if there is oil all over the place. Maybe its leaking from the rear main seal or something.
As for the clicking, the only easy thing I can think of is the flywheel. Maybe it is cracked or a bolt back out or something.

Re: Hell in a hand basket

Thanks for the reply, with the oil problem there is no puddle where I usally park, hardly even a dropm of oil, I replaced the oil pan gasket thinking that was it but I still burn the oil.
And ive come to the same soulation with the noise, its either my fly wheel or torque converter. I had a small problem where I lost a few of the trany to engine bolts why off roading which resulted in a gap between the two more then likly Fing something up between them when I replaced the bolts. but ill fix it all just orederd a new 350 for the BEAST. a little extrem part i need to drive home with it and I dont trust the old rebuild engine.
