Glad to see this post is back. I'd like to add that the small stud by the spark plug must communicate with the crankcase. (does it?). Because after its all warmed up and idling, I see it blowing little oil bubbles. Cute little 1/4 inch diameter bubbles, like 1 a minute. Still, really no mess.
Sometimes, these studs break through into the breather outlet from the crankcase.

Ah, yes. That makes sense, mine is definitely broken through. Thanks C
