Longish story!!!!
Iíve had this car 9 years and has had very little use.
1310 engine, was rebuilt 11 years ago and has done around 2000 miles.
When I bought it it never really smoked but never ran nice.
So I restored the mini and refitted the engine where it never ran right so I removed the engine checked the cr etc and put back together where I smoked!!!
So 2 weeks ago I removed the head to find a valve stem rubber split.... head back on with all new rubber and now itís smokes even worse!!!
Head no back off with oil everywhere all valves are wet and all 4 pistons have puddles on them

Iím slowly giving up

Crack test the head?

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.
VEMS + 12 PSI + Liquid Intercooler = Small Bore FUN!

I saw your post on Facebook? Pretty sure it's coming from the turbo myself. For all 4 cylinders to be literally puddling with oil you have got to have a big leak into the inlet somewhere. Either that you have done somthing majorly wrong with the guides. That fact thay its every cylinder suggests turbo to me tho.

Turbo is pretty easy to diagnose. Have you got an intercooler? is it full of oil?

Intercooler and pipes are brand new and no oil.
Any recommendations to send the head too? Thanks

If it's the pic I was shown today on fookface, on a phone screen it looked like the boring had broken into the oil gallery on number 4 cylinder (one at the top of the pic).

2 head gaskets = bodge.

If something is worth doing, it's worth doing half of.

im going to go with oil controll rings plugged up or too loose. does it smoke real heavy on startup after a few seconds? if so, try a cold start and keep the idle speed really low, like under 850rpm if you can. if it doesnt smoke like usual Its gotta be a piston ring issue, either bore wash , or oil controll ring tension.

I know this as I built a 1380 with weak oil control rings and it smoked proper from cold start and looked every bit as wet as your engine every time I pulled the head.
