Default 582 breather blowing oil

Can anyone explain what causes this? I have a engine in my 582 Special that is blowing oil out of one of the breathers. Is it a bad breather or is it something internal in the engine? I saw where one breather is still available, but the other one isn't. It does appear that I'm blowing oil out of the one that is available. Do I need to buy the breather or is my engine junk? Thanks in advance.

If it's only blowing oil out of one breather, I'd replace that breather. If you had a bunch of blowby it would probably be coming out of both.

B&S really took some shortcuts with that breather design...no replaceable parts, just replace the whole assembly...

I replaced the breather the other day and it's still blowing oil like there is no tomorrow. I assume it's a bad engine. There is a swap meet in Brookville IN tomorrow so I think the 582 Special is going, wearing a name tag with a price on it.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
