That really sounds as if the breather pc in the side of the engine is faulty. They are supposed to stop most oil from going out the tube by allowing it to drain back into the crankcase. I was expecting you to say there was a lot of "air" coming out the tube after you disconnected it... since there isn't, I am suspect of the breather or the drain holes in the block.

well when i ran the tractor, at idle some steam looking exhaust came out, then as i increased the throttle i noticed some oil spitting out also. not alot, in 15 minutes maybe half an ounce.

Check the seal on your dipstick. If it allows air into the crankcase, it will cause pressure buildup, which will force more air out the breather, and oil along with it. Have you checked your breather assembly yet? There are drainback holes in the back of this assembly, and if stopped up, oil builds up in the breather until it blows on out.

I don't know about the gasket, but if you take the breather cover off, its usually a box with a hole in it. The drain holes are back in where the box goes and would drain down into the block.

I'm not sure on the Bolens engines, but all my Onan's & Kohler singles have a rubber seal on the dipstick that seals inside the tube.

I'm not familiar with that series engine, but that sounds like the governor gear. As long as you dont see a timing mark on the gear I think you will be OK.
Someone with experience in this engine should be able to say for sure
