Question 78 Camaro

My girlfriend and I have a 78 Z/28 with a 454 BBC we have been having issues with it burning oil. I have come to find out its the rear main seal. however my question is, is there anything else I should check as I pull the engine apart to replace the gasket? I plan on replacing all the gaskets while I have it apart just want to know if anyone may have suggestions on what else I should check and/or replace thanks!

Re: 78 Camaro

Rear main seal would be a leaking issue not burning (in the combustion chamber).

Have you done a compression test or a leak down test?

Burning oil usually means rings or valve guides, but could be intake gasket,PCV issue...

Whats the background info on the engine
