Looks like a fairly low mileage engine being rebuilt by someone who has never rebuilt a BMC engine and has done not even the most basic research. From the first part of the video I would guess that it's running very rich rather than burning large amounts of oil but I would just be guessing. I'm sure it will all be explained in the end. ??

Simple recipe for Excitement:  Take 1 Classic Mini. Throw in 1590cc's of engine. Add 5 gears. A dash of 94 octane. A sprinkle of style inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan and finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Mini VTEC conversion and full satisfaction. Motor on!
