I've got all the parts back, and found an expensive lesson in all this. When ordering rings, make sure you get a complete set and know what to look for! I had the top two, and the oil waffle rings, but not the oil tension rings that go with them. Bags were labeled 1,2,3, and should have had a 4th bag with the additional rings. I've never been that deep in an engine before, and didn't know I had an incomplete set. Everything has since been cleaned up, new cam bearings have been installed, and I'll be starting reassembly this weekend!

On a good note everything was wearing well, he gave it a light hone and the heads checked out good, so now I should be set.

Thanks for all the advice!

Ryan
Glad to hear its going well with the new kiddo and your oil consumption woes will be behind you soon!

Good news! I've rebuilt and installed the engine and driven it 4 times so far and have not found any signs of consumption! I'm still breaking it in so it'll be easy driving for the first 500 miles before really working it. I haven't seen any smoking at all, through various loads/speeds/RPMs, and the dipstick is still showing full so I hope this is the end of this issue! Once its broken in I will get it dialed in better, during some inspection I found a kink and a split in my fuel line behind the frame going into the tank, so now with new rubber and better/consistent fuel pressure I have more carb tuning to work on!

I appreciate everyone's help on this!

Thanks,

Ryan

Thanks guys, it was a rough lesson to learn but sometimes those are the most memorable. Just because items "fit" according to filtered searches, doesn't mean they are actually applicable. This was not the first time I've run into this problem, I had a mid-grade battery that "fit" but didn't have enough CCA's to power everything in my tahoe, which took a new alternator and a parasitic drain test to finally figure it out. They wouldn't refund me for a good battery, but ended up letting me upgrade for the difference instead.
