Check that all bolts are tightend to spec if they are all tight then check all your oil lines for leaks.sometimes a line will leak and blow around your head making it appear your head is leeking when its not.

2008 6.4 f350. blowing tons of blue smoke for the last 12 months

Blue smoke means burning oil. Black smoke means running too rich (too much fuel in the air/fuel mix). If it is blue smoke:
If it blows blue smoke only shortly after starting, it means oil is leaking into the cylinders from above, through the valves. This us typical of older engines, and can be repaired without removing the engine from the truck (although it is still expensive). A 2008 should not have this kind of problem.
If it blows blue smoke all the time, it is bad piston rings or scored cylinder walls. Oil is leaking from below up into the cylinders. This is bad news - any solution will require removing the engine from the truck and complete disassembly (i.e. a rebuild). No engine oil treatment will make it go away, regardless of what the label says.
It is very, very rare in modern engines for a well maintained vehicle with less than 100K miles to need a rebuild. Damage such as this usually comes from not changing oil AND the oil filter often enough. 3-4000 miles for conventional oil or 6-8000 miles for synthetics. If using synthetic, be sure to get a high quality filter designed to be effective for the synthetic oil change interval.

Check your fuel filter, sounds like it maybe clogged or needs replaced, can use a generic gas filter to fix or troubleshoot your problem. Rick

Have just purchased 1975-76 Z900 cant find any means of checking engine oil level

On the right side case cover, at the bottom towards the rear, there will be a sight glass.
If the oil is dirty, it seems hard to find because it blends in with the motor.

Just remember this, if it has a sight glass, usually the oil cap does not have a dipstick.

If the oil cap has a dipstick, then that is you means of checking oil level

4.3L engines are notorious for blowing intake manifold gaskets, not head gakets. Usually the rear coolant ports on each head.

Kawasaki kdx 125 plugs oil up and bike stalls

I think you have worn internal engine parts. To much oil is getting past the piston rings. Try installing new piston rings and honing the cylinder walls.

Motorcycle knock and blow-by (4 stroke)

hi,might be able to help,a compression test would be a good start,however,if you already have the engine apart,replace the rings anyway,if the engine has been overheated the rings although they look ok will have lost their tension and therefore their ability to hold sufficent pressure against the cylinder walls,therefore allowing blowby,or compression leakage,the other area i would look is the condition of the valve seals and seats,both intake and exhaust,if the engine has been overheated,the seals may have cracked or become weak,whenever i have my race bike apart with the head off i always relap the valves(just a light cut)and this ensures a good seal through the head etc,hope all this helps...cheers ian

if you have abs the electic noise you hear is most likely coming from the abs modulator. as for the rear brakes intermittently locking up, the most common problem is overadjusted rear brake shoes, under adjusted rear brake shoes, or excessive brake dust inside the drums.
