Re: question

they will run along time like that. i drove mine 45 miles to work everyday and the motor lasted 6 months, i had to add a quart for every trip i made. it still ran when i pulled it out, just got to expensive putting that much oil in it, but it ran good. i wouldn't necisarly try to do a quick rebuild, just run it till it dies.

Re: question

IMHO,
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*

Re: question

bubba-if your compression guage is right you have great
compression- till you pull it down you won't know for sure
but i would suspect a bad oil ring and/or valve stem seals
while your down check it all out and fix as needed
