Take the cap off and run it again and see if it still pukes oil, if it does, it's venting, if it doesn't it's seals, a bad pulley or incorrectly installed oil slinger.

Hi Guys,

My first guess was Fuel Vibrator but I thought that was on the back of the speedo? At any rate, if anyone knows what this is and how is it supposed to be hooked up that would be greatly a ...

I don't think you mentioned what kind of car, but a 1-1/2" exhaust system from A1 would be one of the better choices for any vehicle. CSP also has very high quality systems

With the W-110 cam, I would install 34mm venturies in the carbs.

Thanks Dave, I appreciate that advice. I think the default I have in them now is 36mm, so going to a 34mm would not be a bad idea.
