Summary

Owner had just replaced the breather hose but forgot to remove the dust cap from the hose. Dust cap has been removed and the crankshaft seal has now been replaced. There is no vent hole in the breather pipe as this aircraft is an open cockpit aircraft that is never flown in cold weather or the winter months.
