I haven't check the scavenge pump and I'm not sure if I have to unless it's doing it all time. It seems to happen when I'm shutting down letting some cooler oil recirculate. When I was doing laps around my neighborhood (1 mile track essentially) there weren't any oil trails except for on my driveway and when it was idling to circulate the oil.

I may run a long vent or possibly plug it, but before I plug it I want to test the scavenge pump. Since it's mechanical if it doesn't do it all the time then it should be fine.

As far as oil it was just some castrol that I put it for starting it up. I'm going to switch to some VR-1 that I have. I want to figure this out before I put a bunch of new oil in.
