It was the PVC valve--blocked hole--Thanks for the help MB DOC!
With your help I was able to track down the culprit---that little 1.5 mm vent hole in the Idle cylinder (or whatever that thing is called) was blocked and would not let the crankcase vent. As soon as I ran a little wire through it and knocked out the crud I was back in business...thanks for all the ideas...I am glad it was what it was.
Sometimes it is the simplest of things...you just need to know how stuff works, I guess. Thanks to all.
