After running about 2 miles, there were about 3, 4 tablespoons in the breather.

I had this prob, and "fixed" it by installing a filter such as is found on a pneumatic compressor. the filter was inside a can thing with an inlet and outlet hose fitting. I simply installed this into the line, and emptied the oil in the bottom into the engine every now and again...
A little crude, but it worked..

What line did you install this on? Did you eventually replace the rings ?

THe line going from the rocker cover to the filter box - this was an new zealand ea81 - very simple no emmisions, so yours may be different.
I havn't replaced the rings, the enigne is sitting in teh garage as the car is off hte road at the moment. I think a valve is at fault in my case (not seating properly), as the enigne had new rings only about 80,000 kms ago.

We are going to do the compression test tomorrow ... so I'll let you guys know what they are. If it's not too bad, tags and insurance will go on it this week or next.
