OK gearheads explain why I'm blowing oil out.

The port with the screw is obviously missing something as its blowing oil as indicated by the yellow arrow.

What missing? TIA

That is the port where earlier models had the manual compression release mechanism fitted. Looks like the plug blew out.

Thanks, I kinda figured it was a 'freeze plug' style cap that blew out.
