Use something for a dipstick and check and see how much oil is in the lower intake. The throttle body needs to come off.

Absolutely, no house brand will work to spec like an MC will.

Go ahead and get the pcv. If you put it in nuetral while idling what does your rpms read? That will tell you if its driveline or engine. Or at least if the engine drags with a load.

Well, I don't think you going to dipstick it.

Just in case you follow through, - You remove the oil from intake with a suction gun, looks like a caulk gun. Like I said, they will hold 2 quarts in the lower intake/plenum. Then you plumb the PCV to a catch can which collects the blow by (oil). When the can gets full, just dump the oil back into the crank case.

That way you can at least drive without the blow by fouling the plugs. Like I said before engines working against itself. It won't hardly run because the plugs are fouling, loading up. That will give you a little more time with the engine.

It must be making enough compression to at least run, it might work for awhile, pro long the inevitable lol.

Right, that will work too. A little slow, but works.
