Is the engine I just installed junk?!!!!!

Do I have another blown engine? What would cause oil to come out of the number 8 cylinder exhaust? The oil is clean and steady so I'm thinking that its never going to just clear its self out. I just installed the engine in my 1998 E-350. I got it from an auto recycler. Dumb question but is there any way it could be the #8 injector.

i think it could be an injector or injector o-ring, id wouldnt run it at all, it could hydro lock and cause tons of damage.

Why do you think it could be an injector? Everybody else says different. How would oil get threw the injector and if it did it would be burned right?

Because if the o-ring is bad or broking. The oil in the head will flow right past the injector and go straight into the cylinder. And cause it to come out the exhaust

Are you saying to "pull it" and then run a compression test? or do a test first, then pull the injector? How do you do a test with it out. Remember I'm just a bricklayer. Ii only know what you guys tell me about fords. All my company trucks are Cummins.

I'm way frustrated. Compression check on that cylinder is a must but nobody can explain why oil would be spiting throug the exhaust from a bad injector. Is that ever even with all bad injector seals possible?
