Hey guys!
I have a 1991 350 big bear 4x4. I'm pretty sure it has bad piston rings. Just got it out today for a bit, and it's smoking alot, it's blue smoke too. It's got about 8,000 clicks on it already, should I just dive it till it blows up?
There are some other odd things like a clicking sound, and a weird wining sound. If you guys have any info, opinions, or comments please let me know!

I had a 85 honda that I had to put about a quart of oil every week if I drove it much it burned it pretty quickly. That thing ran forever

That's low mileage for a 91!

Rebuild it because you won't find another one built that well
