    so its leaking around the oil filler cap?

    if so, thats not that uncommon, these cars are old, things wear. a new cap is only c.£7 from the dealer

    after that, check your breather system is in good condition. the breather should have been keeping the crank under vacuum, not blowing it out

    Thank you. I will try change oil cup.
    When motor was running and this cap was put off, there was not vacuum, but low blowing air out and some oil gobbet on my hand.

    the cam below the cap would be throwing oil out, there still should be air being drawn out of the crank case via the breather hose going to the underside of the inlet manifold
