Re: 502 BB Chevy Oil Use

my 454 HO (build date=07-04) had the rings in upside down

Light hone--machine heads for new valve seals--new rings
(had this done by a builder)

Engine has not been back in the car long enough for me to get a grip on it yet.

Tailpipes were litterally dripping with oil
Even had an oil spot on the garage floor under the mufflers while the car was sitting w/o motor.
Also---the valley baffle is designed so that the 'tabs' that support it, rest on a intake/head mating surface.
I trimmed the tabs in the center off-----double the vacuum.
Chimps are building these motors
