You say you can smell oil in the exhaust when it warms up? That could be a worn/cracked ring or valve guide seals. Have you ever performed a compression test?

If it runs great - I'm not sure I would mess with it as long as you can stay on top of the oil levels.

Run the compression test. But keep in mind, if you put it under a load it will probly get worse...... Took me 8 gallons to tow 1 horse some 4 hrs. LOL
that was last trip for the Dually..... Tradin was cheaper than fixin!
Not that I would fill it up with oil and trade it on a used PSD....... I mean since the dealers are always honest!!
