took the car for a longer run 60 miles or so today, after pushing the engine a couple of times 5.5k revs the was a couple of little misfires but at the next lights i could see burning oil off the exhausts. temp seemed ok and fans not on. the on another hard blast all ok until back to gentle drive when i started misfiring amd the engine cutting out. temp shot up so slowed down and car returned to normal. back in garage it appears oil is blowing out of the filler cap. it doesnt look like gasket gone and now the car is behaving again other than a weep from the filler. this is beyound me....where do i start chaps?

under the webbers, and another on the filler possibly... should go to a catch tank if you are running 40's/45's, to the manifold if its a downdraft

 

if sidedraughts, or going to a catch tank, it should have the valve disabled in the bottom where it plugs into the block

Sounds like the negative pressure valve is still in do as Dave says remove it and stick a screwdriver or similar through it then replace it and run a pipe from it to a catch tank. In the original system this valve was connected to the inlet manifold and relied on vacuum to open and alow the crankcase to breathe.
