If you do a valve job and nothing to the lower end, ie, rings. Itís a guarantee that whatís left of the piston rings will go bye, bye. As posted above, What is your compression AFTER it warms up? After you take the first compression reading, squirt some motor oil into each cylinder as you retest them. If the compression reading goes up, that will tell you that your problem is rings. If not, then itís valves.
If your using that much oil, and not laying a new oil surface for the road department, then it must be rings. Maybe try some STP. *GriNs*
