Question losing oil?

my 352 runs great, no leaks but i am losing oil. when running it gets pushed out the breather cap on the valve cover and i took the top off the air breather to the carb and the inside has a significant amount of oil in it from the pcv hose, there just seems to be too much internal pressure. any remedies out there? will this blow gaskets? its kind of embarassing sitting at a light, people next to you checking your car out and a puff of smoke comes out from under the hood because oil is being blown on the exhaust manifold.

You need first to service the ENTIRE crankcase ventilation system. You need to confirm engine manifold vacuum at the PCV inlet and remove all intake hoses and ascertain whether they are plugged and/or collapsed. Make sure the oil baffle under the valve and fresh air inlet are open and not blocked.

If you confirm the PCV system is operating correctly...then it is time to check for excessive blowby.
