Why is the crankcase breather discharging to the pan. On the B series (XPB anyway) Wb routed it to the air breather (dumb 45 cut on the hose and tied into place against the silencer).

Route it right to the intake manifold?
Mine also goes to the silencer per B-series spec. The silencer gets a few drops of oil on it every season, which I periodically cleaned off of without thinking much about it. Then I remembered that gravity has a way of pulling stuff down onto the motor and, ultimately, into the pan.

BA. Mea culpa. Duh.
After i re read “low spot” i realized the arrangement.
You’ll never be sorry if you route it  to the manifold, Ron’s repower was apparently OEM that way.
Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did.
