Your rings are blown... time for a new engine.

After seeing the video check that you don't have the spark plug cross threaded or something... it looks like it's not sealing at all.

I'd get a new engine anyway though.

That's some serious Blow-By.. Time to source another motor or rebuild.

sounds like you have the KA-E Head tick issue too. I am biased against the SOHC engine having worked on a couple of them myself.

If you just wanted to fix the oil problem, you could try swapping spark plugs to see if the problem is the thread on the plug or the hole... even then, that oil might be (probably is) in the combustion chamber, thus calling for for a head swap.

Considering the price of some KADE engines, I'd look into swapping for a DE. But do your research on the swap!

Thanks for your input so far guys.

On a side note. The spark plug is threaded correctly.
