If it has oil pressure, drive it. Blow by is not going to increase chances of throwing a rod. If it is an original 64 engine it should have a pcv system. If it is an earlier engine it may have a road draft. Make sure the crankcase ventilation system, either kind, is clean and working right. A couple oil changes may help.

Government conceived by genius, now operated by fools.
new to the forum and the Y block motor. I just purchased a 61 Galaxie wth a 292 motor. I've done alot of research on the issue i'm having with smoke coming from the D/S rear of the valley pan. I've learned alot but haven't got a fix for it yet. The valley pan has a hole with what looks like a threaded boss inside it. I'm told that this motor had a road tube but that an adapter is available to cover that hole and will accomadate a PCV valve. Any insite would be appreciated
