all oil ways cleaned and blown out.. have it back together just need to top up with oil and fire it up.. I found nothing in the oil that added up to a blockage so Im hopeful I either over filled it or the washer was the cause.. I'll update tomorrow!! Not much done in my other job today!!  *smile*

Thanks

SUCCESS!! Not a drop of oil coming from the breather!! Only ran on the stand but it was coming out like a fire hose last time!

She's running lumpy and still erratic idle but Im sure a tune of of the carb will the root cause of that.

Guys thanks a lot for all the advise and help, hopefully this thread helps others like me in the future!

Thanks

Al
