Have a slight oil leak coming from the rear of the right side (passenger) cylinder head. Just leaks enough for oil to drip on exhaust and give a oil burning odor. I'm going to run it until I have other issues due cost of repair. Too scared to tear apart a good running engine with that many miles on it. Motor replacement cost is about $3200 for a new motor.
