Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
There is alot of oil sturating my air filter and filling the tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body to the point where it will drip off of your finger.

I have done this with my '79, so yes it will work. Although my car is a 360 four barrel, the external engine size is identical. The black box on the stock air cleaner is the "Electronic Spark Advance" computer. It replaced the more well known "Lean Burn" as the ignition/fuel management system. Since you will be disconnecting and discarding the ESA due to the air cleaner change, another ignition system must be installed to replace it - if someone has not already done so. I used a Mopar Performance electronic ignition system-still available for about 200.00. This will not hurt anything. The chrome valve covers fit right on. However on my car, the vacuum amplifier bracket was attached to the right side value cover which I cut off the stock cover and screwed into the chrome cover. I sealed the screw holes with gasket sealer. I do not know exactly what you are referring to regarding the cover connecting the value cleaner to the crankcase breather. There is a hose from the breather which connects to a fitting on the air cleaner. This hose allows the crankcase to vent into the carburetor during wide open throttle conditions when the engine vacuum-operated PCV cannot function. I do like the chrome effect even if it does require more care and maintenance. Good luck!

SOURCE: Oil leakage
You have an open hose from valve cover to no where which oil is coming out of....hmmmm, I would think yes..... If you still have a problem with oil blowing out of motor after those are fixed, sounds like you may have back pressure.

Did you put Valve seals in the head???
Other than that the PCV is a good start...
But it sounds like the oil rings on the pistons to me.

if your getting oil in the air filter area, you have a leaking intake gasket or a leaking head gasket, run a compression test on it,
if the compression is where it should be on all cylinders then its a leaking intake gasket!!!
