Is it normal to get some smoke/vapor from the oil fill cap vent on my 1963 2000 gas? It does it more under load. I am sure some is normal or the vent wouldn"t be there but if it"s excessive does it mean that my rings, valves or such are wearing out? It runs great and is fairly strong. Thanks

All engines have some blow by but on cars and truck now days the PVC valve is set up to route it to the air intake so it is then burned out the exhaust. That said as long as your not burning a lot of oil and you do in fact let the engine get up to temp and run it so as to burn off condensation then it is no big deal

Excessive blow by from the breather is an indication of worn rings/pistons/sleeves.

That said, if it starts and runs well and uses little oil it will likely continue to do so for many hours.

Thanks guys. I only work it about 50 hours a year doing gravel road work. Sounds like nothing to worry about for a while at least.

Thanks a bunch for the quick response.
