912 engine burning oil at 51,000 miles


Vehicle Information: Model: 912; Year: 68; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock 1600; Total Mileage: 51000;

Yes, believe it or not I am positive this car has only 51k on it. It had about 43 on it when I got it 8 yrs ago. That's why I thought doing the top end would solve the problem. Yes they did grind the valves and replaced the valve guides. The leak down test showed good compression. A very reputable shop did the work.I realize it must be the rings but I guess I was just hoping for something easier (and cheaper)! How bad is a quart every 300-500 miles?
