'73 MFI Crankcase oil out Tailpipe

I have a new engine with 300 miles on it. All of a sudden crankcase oil is spitting out the tailpipe. The engine seems to be running fine, but the oil in the muffler is burning off and smoking of course. Any thoughts what this could be and how to correct it.
Thanks, Flog.

Meh... that's the break-in oil... keep driving her... but not too hard... then change it when you have put _____ miles on it (consult whoever rebuilt the engine), then change it to ______ weight __________ and drive off into the sunset.

I don't know how much of that should be in green font... probably the part about break-in oil.

Neil, you must be psychic, one of the last posts in the thread.


Motor Meister

Flog, sorry about the thousands of dollars Motorscheister cost you so far and will end up costing you to get your car in good shape. I shudder to think what is inside your engine compartment.
