Re: Oil Consumption: Answer this and you’ll be the man!

just a thought.
You may be right, I dont know enough about the nature of a small eng. like this,on a large V8 that would be nothing I keep thinking that it could be that .020 I am not sure so dont know what to do yet.
The oil build on the intake valves was an indacator of what the problum was, so this is why I replaced the oil seals and decarbonized all parts. But after starting it back up the smoke was still as bad. So I figured that it was oil build up in the exost systom left over from before. So I drove the car and ran it hard. It will not stop smoking, it is not a build up in the exost causing it. Have checked well for blow by; I removed the PVC hose where it enters the valve cover, and there is nothing at all coming out, No blow by at all!!
Thank you for your time!
