Either way forgetaboutit.

The amount of fuel will not add up to a gallon a season , and if the oil consumption gets up to a quart in 10 hours (500 miles car equivelant ,) its still cheaper to just by oil.

Have someone that is familiar with your engine to time it , and enjoy.
Sounds like mine

I'm up to aobut a qourt of oil every 50 hours.

I thought the oil sheen was telling me all was normal and as for the smoke, I thought it's purpose is to remind me to close the salon door

I will (may) adjust the valves this winter. and I just changed the oil, so I'm good til spring.

A beautiful engine. i think I'm in love
