Check your crankcase breather to be sure balls are not stuck, also remove breather hose from aircleaner intake hose. If you are getting excess crankcase pressure I would suspect faulty ring. Check spark plugs to see if either has oil buildup on plug.

think i have found the problem.gasket on dipstis is worn an someone has put a rubber o-ring on it.if the dipstick is not in right place it leaves it loose enough for oil to blow out of it.i turned it till it got snug an ran engine for awhile .no oil blowed out .
