This question looks familiar..*G*

I'll assume you've verified the operation of the PCV valve (that it sucks)...

You might wish to do a leakdown test to determine where and how bad your blow-by is. Then, you can decide what to do next.

Although I have little blow-by on the race car and don't run PCV, I do handle oiling problems like you describe by running seperators on the valve covers with a hose going to a puke tank. Engine remains dry as a bone after years of on-and-off operation.

Most of your trouble would go away if you hooked up a hose to the air cleaner housing....you'd get some oil in there but at least it would be contained and more easily cleaned.

What were your cranking compression readings with the engine warm and no oil added to the cylinders?
