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 .

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
