You need to know what sealant type it is first. I used to have the flexible red aircraft type and it tool two goes at getting it out.

I got mine from these people and they were helpful on the phone too.

Although an oil scraper ring will reduce some oil burn, your original problem was unusually high oil consumption so it sounds like whatever you do with the piston that you will still have your original problem. Maybe some attention to the oil pump and a clean of the oil system will work.

BS had special heavy duty SA boxes made for them because the normal boxes were not strong enough for George. He famously took a wagon of broken boxes to the SA factory (just down the road) to demonstrate their weakness. The special BS boxes are very rare and on ebay would cost more than Madonna's se...
