okay thanks. it also is fouling lots of spark plugs. do you think the rings could be worn and lets oil by causing the spark plug to foul

Yeah if it's fouling plugs I'd just re do the rings. Maybe a piston if you're up to it but that's not necessary.

What color is the smoke?

i would consider glueing a magnit on the drain plug

I would not recommend glueing one on but I'd rather you buy one instead (:
