    I posted this question earlier but have a different approach here. I removed breather plate and installed new gasket, when I turn the engine over with plugs removed so as not to start, oil forces out under the cover, I removed cover and put a good bead of permatex, still forces out the cover. Is this still the same question I had or could it be something different? The reed was ok on the breather , the only thing I replaced was the filter inside. Any thoughts on this issue? I'm kinda stumped! compression was 163 and 175 on cylinders.
