change the PCV valve...this couldn't hurt and is only a couple of bucks...what this thing does is take the pressure off the crankcase oil-air so that the pressure has someplace to go~

does not use much oil about a 1/4 qt every month

Okay, thing I had in mind was the valve guide seals, but you are a step ahead on that. 1/4 quart a month I would say no worries. It's 23 years old, that sort of thing is really just probably worn rings, but not so worn out to be concerned with because you have decent compression.
