    i have just finished redoing the heads and reassembled the bike. i had it running for a few minites them i started to get oil blowing out the filler neck. it looks like i am getting some air blowing into the crankcase vent.
    not sure were to look for this problem

    How was it running before the oil started blowing out the filler tube? Was it running VERY rough, or nice and smooth?

    How far did you dissassemble the bike? Just heads off, or did you pull the jugs, and any work done inside the nose cone? Did you use the original pushrods or adjustable?

    TQ

    i took it down to the heads. it was running good before. the reason i did the heads was it had a small tick in the front head so i redid both. i used the old push rods, after i checked them for staightness
