The right side engine is leaking oil a bit from the crank case but this is all there is after 2 hours of running. Im not going to worry about it unless it gets worse.

I noticed the compression release valves make a mess of the mufflers, no wonder some people seal them off with a short bolt. Maybe when my engines are not so tight anymore I'll be able to turn it over without the releases and do the same.

Have you checked your Head Torque ? You seem to have a huge amount of oil blowing out the motor and it seems to be coming from the base of the cylinder. What oil ratio are you using ?
