You need one! LOL There should be a 3/8" pipe on the front of the carb just for that. PCV in one cover, vent hose going to the aircleaner in the other.

|glen242||76 elco never answered the question on if he had a PCV valve and system installed properly. My guess is NO.|

ANY running engine will produce some amount of blow~By..I think that is what you are seeing.
IF you don't have a PCV , Install one AND a vented breather cap..It will keep the Engine / Engine Bay cleaner, as well as the undercarriage, and garage floor..the oil will stay cleaner longer.
IF you do have a PCV, inspect it..(Rattle Check it) Then shoot a bunch of carb cleaner through it Be sure it's the right Valve for your Application also.
If it continues , or starts slinging oil, check your valve covers for Baffles, if none, install them.
If it's a FRESH engine the blow~By will settle down over time.
Have a HAPPY and SAFE

|GCD1962||Don't worry, it's probably just normal condensation in the oil pan that is being heated when the car is running and it's venting out the breather|

|31choptop||it wouldnt necessarily have to heat up or overheat to be a head gasket. it could be either pcv plugged or inop. or water vapor from ????. check the coolant level!|

Do you have a PCV valve properly installed in one valve cover? If not, you NEED one. It's most likely a small amount of blow by which is normal. (if there is NO pcv valve)
It's also possible it's steam!! (ouch! not good)
Pull the drain plug on the pan a little and see if any water or antifreeze drips out. If it does, you got problems.
