In my case I am pretty sure the carb is dialed in properly and timing is correct; but I plan on checking the carb and timing.

My issue is excessive burning of oil and I want to first investigate the rings by doing a leak down test. Then I will be checking the carb and timing. I just don't know where the oil is going ? Several people have posted potential problems and the list is getting longer
The rings are a major thing the leakdown test picks up.
