    The "latte" ones are great, and none of the others are wet. :D So how many miles on the motor, and, what's that gap, what kind of ignition, wires, etc. Edit; that gap looks like .045????
    Have you taken a ride on those Edelbrock shocks yet?:D

    4 look good, three look like you are burning some oil, and one looks to be in the middle of that someplace.

    is it possible that they are burning oil because the motor is still so new that the rings havnt seated or does that mean that the rebuild was a flop?

    Probably just because the rings haven't seated yet, I hope for you anyway.

    I rebuilt my 406ci and have number 8 cylinder that likes it's oil for some reason.
