My brothers blew a few water pumps, but other than that only the rocker cover leaked which wouldnt be the cause of 1 litre a week, id be degreasing the engine and see where its coming from?

My brother had one of these and sold it for next to nothing when it started leaking oil like that.

His oil leak was mostly out of the exhaust pipe while the engine was running tho!!
