a buddy has a 68 sporty and way overfilled his primary by 2 qrts. said he drove once around the block and now has oil spurting out of the check valve breather hose at the bottom of motor. i helped him drain the oil and we replaced with the recommeded 2 .5 pts. still spurting oil out of the bottom breather hose. did he screw up the check valve? any suggestions?

Never check K or X oil tank level on cold engine!!! Same for tranny level... They all wet sump to an extent when standing unused...
