[Spridgets] rear oil seals and crankcase ventilation

I vent my 1275 through the fuel pump boss on the left side of the
crankcase.  Some have said this won't work but I'm here to tell you that
it does.  It works very well for me and has since I installed it in the
mid-90s.  It requires removing the engine and a little fabricating but
all that is pretty easy if you turn your own wrenches.

To All;
Thanks much on the rear seal info.  The discussion brings up another
Any thoughts on proper crankcase ventilation?
I had wanted to put some sort of a newer PCV valve on my 1275.
What one could be used?  I read something about how the cannister on the
of the timing cover is probably blocked up.  Can this be removed and an
welded in its place?  One option was to cut the cannister in half, gut
it, and
weld it back together.  I think I'd rather just cut it off and go with
Thanks for all your help.
