With it going through a quart an hour I'd say that you did a wet and wetter test. That would account for the very small difference in the numbers. How much of a ridge in the liners? If it were me I'd just go ahead and bite the bullet and rebuild it.
I have 2 8N's. One I rebuilt this spring and the other I got in Aug. I really like getting on the rebuild because I'm confident of the engine. Not real sure yet of #2. Really haven't run it much yet bebcause of the dry year. Looks like it's slobbering a little oil but starts and runs well and isn't using oil much. Think that I'll keep an eye one it and put some AFT in the cylenders over winter. If it's still slobbering after that I'll rebuild that one too.
