    My friend has a 350, we suspect is a Goodwrench 350. It was an excellent runner, then started blowing oil everywhere back through the dipstick and breather.

    It also lost power. He found a push rod which had the top end of it all worn down at the rocker arm. He replaced that, but it still blows oil and loses pressure when it gets warmed up. Compression is good.

    There may be metal in the engine, and the oil pump is clogged with metal. Your friend had better rebuild the engine before it grenades.

    Check your air filter housing, it's probably has oil blown all inside from the breather if your still stock. Time for new rings and pistons. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
