I've done diagnostics as Tony (TFOB) recommended and the PCV is the culprit.

He recommends a "vent spacer", but I'm not sure exactly what that is or where to get one (or how to make one, if that's what is needed).

All help is appreciated. I would have just PM'ed Tony, but thought I'd get a cross section of thought.

i think a vent spacer is just a carb spacer with a tube that you can attach a hose to run to the pcv valve. i have a 1 inch carb spacer but my carb has a hookup for the pcv line so i dont need the vented version.

you should be able to find one pretty easily, NPD, Summit etc.

Tony says it goes "between the PCV valve and the valve cover" so I don't think he is talking about the carb spacer with vacuum fitting. BTW-Sorry I don't know how to rename a link and got this wide post.

I hate it when that happens!

I use a GM style PCV that has a 90 deg bend on my valve cover. That 90 bend could help keep the oil in. You can kinda see it here:

I've been carrying this oddball part around since '92. It looks like your spacer. OD on the big end is 1-7/16" and the small end is 1". With the right bushings it'd work. Whether or not it would cure the problem is another question. PM me if you want it.
