Hi Chuck,

How many hours on this engine?

High oil consumption at full throttle is piston rings/bore wear.

A head gasket will not solve this.

I think the engine has a little over 3000 hrs on it. Any previous engine work is unknown to me as I just purchased it. Can you recommend where I can get parts for this engine? Thanks

Hi Chuck,

Might be a little hard for me to recommend you where to go.

I'm in Australia.

Did the link I attached help you?

They seem to have a lot of parts.

They have rebuild kits, if you want to rebuild your own.

Hi Chuck,

I think I will opt out and open your question to another tech to help you.

You have given some info which will help the next tech.

Hope he can sort this for you.

No need to reply, as it will come back to me.

All the best to you.
