Well she's running! I think the oil ring is stuck or broke it has a lot of blow by in the crankcase and is slobbering a little oil out the exhaust.

Hi Brian

That peep hole is to take away any leaking fuel oil from the fuel pump element if there is a lot coming out suggest pump needs servicing or renewing. Early engines had a small pipe connected to the pump bracket door and a drip tray. Later engines had a blank door with the gasket having a slot into to allow any leaking fuel to go into crankcase.
