 Ford 8210 blowing oil

I have a Ford 8210 tractor that was up for an oil change. It had been running fine. I ran it all day Tuesday and when I finished that night it was late so I drained the oil and let it sit overnight and the next day. Wednesday afternoon I put new oil in and changed the filter(the same type of oil that I have always used). I started it and everything was fine. Thursday I ran it all day and I noticed that it was blowing alot of smoke and oil out of the breather tube. During the day I had to add more engine oil. The tractor still seems to be running fine it just blows the oil out. I haven't had this problem before. Does anyone have any sugestions. Thanks for your time!!

What comes to mind is that it'd be good to do a compression test. Something like a broken ring could be the explanation and it might be unrelated to the oil change. A condition like that could cause more damage to an engine if it continues to be operated. The oil pressure was OK after the change I guess.

As Tom stated it may be rings but more than likely if the engine is starting fine and has good power I would bet that it is valve seals which is also unrelated to the oil change. This is generally not a difficult job to do but you need a service but to set your clearances. How many hours are on your tractor?

Just out of curiousity, what brand & type oil are you running now as opposed to what you were using before the oil change?

 Ford 8210 blowing oil

I am using the same oil as always. 15W-40 Rotella. The tractor just turned 5000 hrs. The tractor starts right up and seems to be running ok. I haven't ran it since the day that it started blowing oil but it didn't seem to be lacking any power. I am waiting on a mechanic to come look at it.
Thanks for all the comments.

Tom and Oneace bring up the most probable causes. On the off chance that the injector pump is leaking fuel into the oil; did you notice if the old oil was runny and smelled heavily of diesel. If enough diesel leaks into the oil; it can thin it enough to cause it be prone to being blown out the crank case vent tube as you describe. Does the engine blow oil and gases out of the crank case vent tube when it is cold or only when it is at full operating temp after some useage? This is likely not the case but might be worth looking into in the event you eliminate what Tom and Oneace brought up. Also, something else I was thinking of but I am not up on the Ford/NH engines. Do the crankcase vent tube have a one way check valve? If so, and it is stuck open; could this cause the problem. I am sure Oneace might be able to shed some light on this.

I do not think that this engine has a check valve most NH/Ford do not. But I may be wrong. Where your tube comes out of the valve cover does it connect to a steel nipple or is there a plastic piece that the tube connects to and the the piece pushes into a grommet in the valve cover? This is called a PCV valve.

I was not sure of the tractor but I just looked at a picture
and now I am pretty certain that it does not have a PCV valve. I have the pic on my profile if anyone is interested.

Thanks for all the comments!! It is a steel tube that pushes down directly into a grommet on top of the valve cover. I guess there is no PCV Valve.

That is what I thought. More than likely you have bad valve seals. Like i said before it not not too expensive of a fix and only takes about 2 to 3 hours to do and no removal of the head is required.
