If this fails I'm willing to come down and pick it up. I have one last Boy I need to outfit with a Toyota truck, Yours would be perfect.

Haahhahaha... You are one person I'd think would appreciate a 4th Gen truck in the condition it is in.  But I'd only sell it to someone who WILL NOT take it out and trash the crap out of it.  1986 Toyota trucks in this original condition is getting rare.

My gut feeling is saying this new head will NOT fix the oil consumption issue.  I believe its either a bad bore and hone job (wrong RA), or defective rings as Jim at 22RE Performance suspected.

If it continues to burn a quart of oil every 600 or 700 miles, I'll probably pull it and have Jim at 22RE Performance build me a long block.  One option I have tossed around in my head is to rebuild it again myself to prove to myself I really can successfully rebuild a 22RE.  If I do that, I'll bore it again and put in a stroker kit.

1986 XtraCab SR5 22RE 5speed W56B, ~26,000 MI after break-in, DIM (Did It Myself) rebuilt engine - .020" over, engnbldr RV head, OS valves, 261C cam, DT Header.
