. It is a common fail point when a hole will develop and allow oil to drop directly into the exhaust manifold passage of the head, bypassing the cylinder, which would explain why you don't have significant smoke.
This is interesting, I'd not heard of this issue before. Is the fix for this a new/used head? Or can the head be repaired if this were to happen? Is there any way to diagnose this short of pulling the head and taking it to a machine shop?
