The times I've had sealing issues and oil usage like this, you couldn't see oil evident on the backs of the valves, you could only feel it on the port walls using a dry finger. Fuel wash is constantly cleaning them and they are hotter while the engine is running than the port, the oil comes off them easier(thinner).
Thanks for this info....exactly what I was looking for. Wonder if this is/was or part of my problem all along ? Cork gaskets are not being used, but wondering if there is some issue with the fitting of the intake and it needs machining ? I guess I'll wait and see what the builder thinks; hopefully this can be diagnosed as either being and issue or not.
