Engine Mechanical problem
1961 Ford Falcon V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 10,000 miles
I have a Ford iron block 302 crate motor, with just over 10,000 miles. It has SVO aluminum heads, Holley 570 Avenger carb and custom headers. It smokes when starting it, but not too bad when driving. It uses a quart of oil every 200 miles. After 500 miles of driving, the plugs are black, oily and crusted. Compression on the cylinders is from 180 to 165. I was going to do a leak down test, but someone told me that it wouldn't tell me if the valve seals were bad or if it was the oil rings. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
