If you can get your hands on one i'd do a compression test to begin with, and see if there is any difference between F & R pots

Knackered rings......or broken oil ring on offending cylinder? :? At least that was the culprit on an old C90 we took apart years ago.

It's too late. On the strength of all the good advice here the OP has stripped the engine right down to the crank cases...
