How do you check to see if rings have seated on my in frame I done less then 100 miles ago? Compression test will that tell me?
If the rings did not seat, you'd be adding oil a lot, and as Jason said, see high amounts of breather pressure.
You can A) put a manometer on it and measure the crank case pressure,
Or B, record Oil burnt vs number of gallons of fuel burnt.

Either of those have published specifications for what is too much.

If you do oil vs fuel, you should see the consumption fall off gradually.
