Douglas, Staff here are busy and may not read every post.
It may not be the best forum etiquette, to call on staff this way.
May I recommend in the future that you consider contacting Mike Via PM and ask if he can help, as input into the thread, with a link Please!

Ya the problem with that idea is, one minute you are on, the next you are gone LOL..

So lets get back to helping on this 3 quartz of oil consumption every 1000 miles...
Have you done a cylinder compression test yet?

I think different people have suggested different things like looking at the valve seals
but with the I guess they are called beehive valve springs you cant tell much
with out removing them
There are ways to do it with the heads on the motor
maybe you should try that
The head by the radiator first replace them all then see if the your oil burning goes
down at all then if it dose
you can do the inboard head

The rocker arm bolts as I am told are one time use torque to yield bolts so be sure not to reuse those

Yes the rocker arm bolts are one time use {unless you want them to possible fail} we have measured old ones next to new ones they stretch were you should not reuse them
Ok I guess lots do at there own risk but when I have seen some old ones .080 longer then new ones so we do not think the should be reused ever!!
