Fish, it makes you wonder how many quarts of oil it took to get to that point. Some guys just can't buy a clue--just keep pouring oil in it.

Actually, the motor really didn't leak any oil!!
The clue lies in the yellow paint.......

Nah it just looked like bolt was loose close to the pump lines. Big fish on my leakdown tool thread. You never answered back. When you do leakdown do you just go 1/4 past top dead center then do the test.

No, I can not find the problem.
I have to find the engine first.
Post a picture of the engine.
