Default Cylinder oiler blow back problems

I am experiencing cylinder oiler blow back on a 1/4 scale throttle governed engine. The oiler is not straight through, it has what looks like some sort of check valve fitted but the oil still blows back up. Not sure what my options are, can anyone help ?

If your oiler does have a check valve the problem may be nothing more than dirt on the check valve seating, If you can strip the valve down and give it a good cleaning it may cure the problem.

It's not stripable Mike and it is a new oiler. All looks to be as it should. It seems the back pressure is too much for it but anything larger will be way out of scale, even if I could make it fit.
