Thanks to everyone with all of your help and technical know how. :cheers:
I changed the oil & filter put just 6qt's in,changed the breather on pass side back to a breather with a nipple and ran it to the base of the carb air breather,put the oil fill plug in the front pass side and put a better baffle on the pcv.went and put about another 10 miles on car tonight and i'm happy to report that the breather lines and pcv are "DRY" :excited:
Now the back of the pan still drips sometimes,so talking with Tim tonight before i rip the pan off he told me of something i have forgot about,sometimes those pans are not quite perfect or have a small dent in the sealing lip,so tommorow or after the car cools down,i'm going to take a drift and tap around the part that leaks and see if that cures my sometimes drip sometimes not.:thumbsup: :devil:

And oh yeah HeartAttack runs great ecspecially once you get beyond 2500rpm :devil:

Lifted the front of the car,took a drift to the oil pan seal where it is drip'n,let it down started it and nothing :thumbsup: but i don't get excited yet let it set there and run for a few min's revved it up a couple times,and still no drip :thumbsup: :thumbsup: so i take it out for a drive about 8 miles,pull back into the garage leave it running look under the car and drip.......drip :nuts:
well its slower than before :laughing: so i will try it again later after cools down and take the drift to the pan again :thud:
