    looking for any ideas why my 8hp ind plus motor is blowing oil out of the breather hose on the valves. its coming out of the tube that is attached to the air cleaner housing.. any ideas would be much appreciate.. a little more info to help is that it is a collection system motor and i have checked the oil level and its not over filled .also the oil seems to have a gray tint like it might have water in it, and i did a oil change two weeks ago. thanks chris

    Two things, Worn rings or bad breather assembly. You can remove the breather assembly, You will see a round hole on the inside with a tan colored disc in the center. Hold the assembly with this disc facing up the lightly tap the center with your finger, It should spring back up to close the hole up. If it doesn't replace the assembly.

    Good Luck
