It might be a good idea to find a good compression gauge and run a compression test to give you more information about the mechanical condition (rings, etc).
Keep fresh oil in it; old oil has a tendency to burn up a bit quicker in high mileage engines.
Do you have any evidence of oil in your air cleaner box? If you do, search for BLOWBY.
