400 decks and heads move around and/or crack a lot. If they were not closely checked for warp and crack on the rebuild. You may have lost a head gasket. Causing coolant and/or oil loss, plug fouling. A scored piston skirt. A broken compression or overlapped expander ring will cause oil use.

Take a plug reading, compression check. Go from there.
