I should have known better and stuck with good old cast, but since it was a fresh .030" overbore with a nice cylinder finish I put the first type of Moly Sealed Power rings in my engine (there is more than one grade as I recall/discovered after I bought them). The other day I noticed my oil pressure was not as high as it usually is. Then I noticed my noisy valvetrain (B302 valve covers seem to amplify valvetrain noise) was a little noiser than usual.
Checked the oil and was horrified (and mad at myself for not checking it sooner, checked a couple of weeks ago before Carlisle and it was fine) to find the oil was down over 2 quarts! Barely reading on the stick! And dirty! Can't be more than 1500 miles on it since changed, 20W-50 with ZDDP Plus.
Changed the oil and all is well but I am pissed that I can't seem to get these rings to seat.
Valve covers have the correct baffles in them.
Anyone have any tricks/advice or just live and learn to stick with cast rings?
