Mine isn't quite that steamy, but not too far off. Despite a new oil cap gasket, it still makes that oily mess on the valve cover gasket and oil works its way onto the top of the air cleaner too.

I'm not sure if it's the way the camera's picking up the audio and the belt or pulley noise, but the idle of that engine doesn't sound right to me...it sounds slow and a bit rough. Though mine does that too when it's completely cold and the idle control is all the way down.

Anyway, Mr. Camping said the end of the world is really October 21, so you have a few more months to improve the blowby before everything blows up.
