LOL, could do it easier by just pulling the intake runners and going for a ride! (and hope no birds fly in there)

I have seen oil migrate to the area you indicated from other places. That seems to be a natural place for it to go.

But if you have a bad tube:
IMO the key to changing the pushrod tubes is having a drift punch of just the right size and good solid support for the cylinder. I turned a punch down from some brass round stock and made a collar for the bottom of the cylinder from 1 1/8" plywood. Sometimes the tubes come out with two or three whacks with a dead blow hammer and sometimes a little heat is needed.

I good friend of mine did that and it back fired through the carb and caught the garage on fire. So I'm a little paranoid about doing that. Plus if you clean the tube and stick it back on you will have an idea of how much might be coming from the breather if any.
