Well, did you find the cause of your oil usage? I have been chasing a similar issue since my engine was put together years ago. Even replaced all the valve seals (PC's) to to avail. Completing the 5000 mile maintenance now, so pulled the intake. No sucked in gasket, but does appear to have been drawing oil down 7 cylinders by the intake runners. I have not found anything definitive yet. Will have to see once it is re-assembled with fresh gaskets. I'll hopefully post photos when job is complete.
Im about 90% sure its a valve guide issue itself . Ive done a cylinder leak down test and cyl #2 is just a click under 20% loss, the other 7 of them are 15% or less . So my gut tells piston rings are not the problem. At least not enough I feel they are the primary issue Ive done a couple tests to ck intake seal and also confident its not my problem So for now,,,Ive decided to live with it as is,,,at least for the time being anyway. Compression is a tad high for a street car ( approx 11.5 to 1 ) so Im thinking open it up maybe next year or year after and go back thru it with new pistons and have the heads done . Maybe sooner but odds are will wait until after I retire
Sprucing this up for one of my sons.
Hope you schooled him about how they tip over going downhill wrong way.

Or how if one back tire hits a little tree on the way by, it will flip on it's side and throw you ten feet away !

Working on getting the new engine wiring done. Putting all the other part's on like radiator and hoses and all. Then can fire the motor for the first time. Waiting on parts is the pit's.
Long story short shower in master has been ehhh since I bought the house .it was good enough till about 3 weeks ago when a few tiles finally let loose! Said well guess I better hurry. First time tileing. Had to pull sheet rock they liquid nailed all tiles on ! Pulled insulation replaced got concrete rock up leveled /fixed floor. Wasn't 100% with water barrier so I red guarded everything to be sure! Layed floor tiles yes I know drain isn't centered I would of had a ton of cuts and more waist then I aloud wish I measured before I fixed floor I would of moved the dang pipe to center! Even if I split the difference on the end peace it was still off ! Anyways got floor done a little bit ago . Some time tomorrow I'll start on walls ! Walls should go very fast .let's hope it sticks !!!
Up date on the 4-speed conversion. Took it out last night for a zip around the block just Fing Cool is all I can say! Spent today working out the bugs still waiting for the Blank bezel where the buttons used to be. New wind lacing and carpet next week. Boy the pedal install was a little tough but Igot it done.
Look's grate. Yes nothing like grabbing gear's.
I truly believe one misses some of the muscle car experience with an automatic? Awesome decision!

I always did think the 3 wheelers were fun in there own way and always wanted one. I had a Big Red given to me last year so I'll be doing the same soon enough.
Took the day off, putting on the new tires, the 1992 Good Year Eagles served well for 29 years It’s a good day
