That's a good point about the clamps. It doesn't take much for the oil to find a way out. I had a slight crack in my breather tube. I didn't replace it I just cleaned it real good and used crazy glue. That was a long time ago and it's still holding up. Something else to look into.

I saw some improvement by upgrading to the newer style breather tube (B2010-36001 on fastlane).
