Oil Dumping From Lower Vent Tube

Here lately my custom S&S 96 cu in chopper dumps oil out on the ground when trying to start it. it seems to only do it if it has been sitting awhile. Also, when trying to crank it up it does not want to turn over properly(slow) not enough to fire it up. starter terminals smoking from strain . I have checked battery and its fine/fully charged.

What could be causing this?

Its called "sumping" .......your check valve/ball is probably dirty. Do a search on sumping, you'll find out all you need to know.

Just couriuos, what kind of oil are you using?
