W4 Breakdown, Rebuild Manual

Can anyone recommend a good source for a breakdown or rebuild manual for the Continental W4 engine? The plan is to replace the little Star engine in my A-22 , but I have plans for the engine and it is suddenly (and mysteriously) using oil. There is seeping around the pan gasket but no big leaks, there is no noticeable smoke from the exhaust, but I managed to use a quart+ of oil just tooling around town for a half hour. Recommendations are appreciated. Thanks.

I'm at work now but this weekend I will email you the scans of a Continental Overhaul book.

Could I get a copy of this manual as well for the w4a engine, a son in need of one for a w5a engine as I'm currently trying to restore an old gem!
