Mine WAS one of those - then I replaced the rings and no more oil  
burning. It runs like a champ now - if you don't consider that either  
a fuel pump or timing sensor is starting to fail causing  hard starts  
My bearings were all good enough to re-use, and as someone pointed  
out, head bolts and rod bolts are available so really this was a  
pretty easy "overhaul".
