Hi, have recently replaced stock cams with the S&S cam drive kit, original cam backplate & pump, S&S adjustable pushrod. It runs excellent but every now and then it blows oil out of the filter housing, especially if we go highway riding. Where have I gone wrong? And what would be the fix? In advance thanks!

Those could be your problem.
How many miles on the engine ?
Did the lifters get replaced ?

Forgive my late reply, oil pressure is about 35 at Idle, 45 - 50 at 3000 rpm

Yes, replaced lifters with the new ones from the S&S 510G Gear Drive Cams kit

Has been changed speedometer a couple of times, but a qualified guess would be just about 100 000 miles

The relief valve bleeds off pressure at the high end - shouldn't effect idle pressure. You might want to verify the pressure with a mechanical gauge.

What about running a half a quart low like other threads suggest? Never said what a/c you're using.
