Radiator pressure test is ideal....bt this is normally a sign of blown head gasket,cracked cylinder head or block.Since the Canter's block is cast iron the chances are slim bt they do happen to crack

Hello Malcolm , A cracked head, cracked block, or a blown head gasket can cause your problem. Put a pressure tester on the cooling system to determine if the pressure is too high.

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

Positive Crankcase Ventilation has been used for decades and uses a valve (PCV) to route oil fumes and any pressure due to blowby back into the intake system to be mixed with fuel and somewhat burned during combustion. I'd guess you need to have the PCV and possibly the hoses connecting it replaced.

SOURCE: Radiator blockage?
I believe you have a head gasket blown or a cracked head. When you start it up COLD with the cap off, it would push water out immediately. Fill it with plain water and try this. It might not be a bad idea to perform a pressure test too. Also check for antifreeze in the oil. It will get milky looking and might even be over full. If this happens after warm-up, you may just have a plugged radiator. Have it professionally cleaned. The water pump vanes could also possibly be corroded off and it's not effectively displacing coolant. Hope this helps.
