Now why didn't I think of that. LOL

It don't leak aleast underneath or appear to be leaking on the top of the engine.It runs really strong, don't smoke. I live in Colo and have taken it up mountain passes to 12,000 feet don't miss runs like a swiss watch, just burns oil as I said before

I don't know what oil you use in the engine but you can try changing to a heavier oil. At this point you have nothing to lose.
