rhino loosing oil

hi my name is todd and I am having trouble with my rhino. when I go wide open oil from the base gets pushed in to the air box. not just a little oil enough so it doesnt read on the dip stick.

it will still push some oil, might be ready for a top end/ring job

I allready have a siphon break and thats how i noticed the oil leak. the oil pumped right through the filter on the end of the siphon break and ended up on my floor board.

the crankcase is vented via the end of the counterbalance shaft end. ( yeah I know it is stupid)

when rings start to go, this causes excess pressure and pushes oil out the breather tube that is above the counter balance shaft end.

if you want to try another area, then look for the chrome bolt head in front of the oil filter on the block, (maybe a 15mm or 17mm I forget) take it out ( it does nothing) and install another breather there
