    Compression test the thing. My guess is that the rings were poorly fit and/or didn't seat correctly. Did you have the head freshened up? The valve guides could be leaking as well.

    Not true. A properly built motor should burn zero oil.

    What type of procedure did you use to break the motor in? If you babied it around at constant rpms for 1000 miles that is why the rings didnt seat correctly.
