Oil burning Prowler??
Hi all, I've just began stripping my engine down for the 2nd time in the last 2 months or so. First time was transmission related - bevel gear upgrade. This time it's related to connecting rod bearing failure after low oil level.
Question is.....if I have no external oil leaks.....where did my engine oil go to (I lost about 2 liters!)? Topped it up last weekend, and after 4 or 5 hours of riding this weekend I ran dry. Lost the connecting rod bearing, hopefully nothing else.
I'm assuming that it has been burned off, it didn't leak through the clutch seals, so I'm assuming either bad rings or bad valve stem seals. Don't think I would lose oil through a bad cylinder head gasket? Strangely, engine did not appear to be smoking at all.
Any advice? Where do these things usually fail?
