New build, oil out through exhaust??
Can anyone help shed some light on this issue I have with a new build?
Its a 07 96 punched out to a 103 with Screaming Eagle MVA heads, 10.5:1 SE pistons with their SST rings, standard bore. During the initial start up everything was fine through several heat cycles then proceeded on a low speed road test for a total of 32 miles, upon return smelled oil and the pistons had oil on them and the valve ports in the heads were saturated with oil.
Took it down, disassembled the heads and the machinist said everything was ok, sometimes those rings would skate on top of the oil on the walls and push it out the exhaust.
Reassembly #2 ball honed the walls and installed a new set of rings into a dry cylinder. After another few heat cycles there was oil again on the pistons and going into the heads.
Right now the cylinders, pistons and heads are back at the machine shop. So far the update to me is the rings and cylinders are set up correctly, and they are going to reinspect the heads and look into to see if theres another set of rings that may be better.
Any of you engine guys heard of this issue and moreso would you have a suggestion on what to do next?
Sure appreciate any help.
