1990 EVO oil line question

I'm using a engine from a 1990 softail in my CFL project.. I looked on the web and talked to a harley mechanic with 30 years or more experience on the oil line routing... I just now got everything buttoned up and cranked the bike over a few times just to make sure everything was wired correctly... I took a break and when I came back there was a puddle of oil on the floor that came from the 90 degree elbow fitting that comes out of the bottom of the block in the rear.. he told me to just put on a piece of hose and let it vent under the bike.... any suggestions what my problem may be?

Yes ..sounds like my old Shovel head... the oil pump ball bearing check valve sounds like it is worn. it stops oil from draining into the cases when you turn the bike off..When it wears the engine pukes....That,s all you can do until you fix it is let it drain out ..like he said........
They say you can fix that by lightly tapping the ball bearing to try and seat it again...but any way you look at it the seat needs some work...
