Ok I 'm sure its not good. Just bought the truck . Just replaced the carb and steering pump. never noticed it before .... When i dorve it today i noticed that the dip stick had popped open and oil spilled out onto the header and frame..... maybe i'll get lucky and its something simple like clogged PCV ... Or maybe i'll be motor shopping here soon. Any suggestions to what I can do to find out whats causing this..... thanks

Doesn't sound good. Sounds like a blown ring. Check compression and leak down on all cylinders.

Good luck!

yeah I hate to even think its that. the guy has a setup on ti where there is to PCV valves one on each side and they both connect and run intothe carb... Im gonna put a breather on one side and see if it helps... If not oh well time to rebuild. thanks for the input
