blowby and blue smoke on buddies truck

okay my buddy bought a 95 cclb psd for dirt cheap, it wasnt running and the dumbass mechanic who was working on it before he bought it was starting the truck with ether. well the CPS was bad and a few other things so we changed that out and got it running. well it has bad blowby now and a lot of blue smoke. we are thingin the injector o rings are shot and we're going to replace them. my question is, are we on the right path to repairing the truck??? any info would be appreciated. the only reason I think the orings is because I think the ether could of ate away at them, they used a lot of it on the pickup.. or what does ether do to out trucks? I'm not sure I just know its not good

Took my engine apart last week, because of smoking issue's at idle, and had alot of blow by. Found #4,#5, and #6 had bad compression rings. Be prepaired to shell out alot to rebuild it!!! O-rings will not cause blow by.

ps: either tends to make your connecting rods C-shaped instead of being straight. LOL

Me 2!!! I tried the o-rings on mine before i took it apart as well. The blow by and low compression on #5 is what made me decide to tear it down. It's taking 030. to clean the cylinders up. Gonna have new pistons, rings, bearings, and oil pump, oh and it needed all new valves as well. Gonna be into this engine for about $2500 to $3000 and i am doing the work myself!!! These things are expensive, but at least i will know what i have when i am finished. Good luck with yours my friend, i hope yours is not as bad as mine was. Oh and Merry Christmas!!! LOL

I appreciate it and MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALSO lol

haha yeah that would be my philosophy on it, but he's tryin to trade it for another psd and doesn't really wanna screw anyone over. this truck is turning out to be a nightmare though, someone has worked on it before and lost half the bolts to the valve covers and theres 10mm 12mm and 13mm bolts on it now lol
