  1. 55 259 blowing oil out of the oil filler

    I have a 54 Commander with a 55 engine that was recently rebuilt at a local performance center in Monroe, WA. I installed an aluminum valley pan with a pcv valve. No breathers in the aluminum valve cover. Only the oil filler in front of the intake has a stock breather.

However, it diminishes significantly when I push in the clutch pedal. The previous owner mentioned to his daughter (she sold me the car) that the engine needed a shim or spacer?
