I rebuilt the motor on my 73 B last fall. Put about 2000 miles on the rebuilt 
motor and have noticed concerning oil consumption. the motor was entirely 
rebuilt with new rings, valves, bearing, gaskets seals ect. The block was 
boared and all set up professionally. I have noticed increased oil consumption, 
but no blue smoke or any kind of gasket leaking under the car.  The car is 
clean and oil free underneath. some one suggested that possibly the rings take 
time to seat which causes extra oil consumption. I am running over 60psi on the 
oil pressure gague, but at idle the pressure fall to 20psi. occasionally the 
gague bounces up and down like a flutter.
