    On your new engine, do you have a PCV valve? That ventilation system should help relieve the normal pressure from inside the engine. Oil isn't normally standing in that area, so if it is blowing it out of the front and back, you have too much pressure inside the engine.

    Lots more to do on both the trucks

    And a bunch of fast Buicks
