I'm new here but gathered some useful info on other matters with my truck . I'm in need of some major assistance if anybody has an idea . I recently bought this truck and love it but it started blowing oil from the top half of the timing cover , but only going down the highway , also developed a lot of blow by . I can't seem to find the cause ,suggestions ?? No power lose .
cracked rings? i'm in the same boat. no noticeable loss of power here either

The test for excessive blow by involves the use of a Manometer. It is done with the RPM's near governed limit. It has been explained in the IDI forum somewhere. Search the IDI forum for "blow-by" or "Manometer". Another key word that should work is "CRANKCASE PRESSURE"
