First off...Thank you, triplenickel, for the response.

I believe that the switch that you mentioned (oil pressure switch) is the connection that I found undone when I had the airbox off a few weeks back. The connection resembles that of the horn. As per the advice I got here, I re-connected it.

After you mentioned it, I went out to the garage and checked it. It was still connected. I tried to move the female connection back and forth, and it appeared to have a good, solid connection.

Is it possible that, on the long highway runs of my trek, the crankcase built-up so much pressure that the motor burped oil? I was between 80 and 90 mph (indicated). It doesn't make sense to me, as I was under the impression that the LC-8 was a racing motor. I am at a loss...

I spent all my money on motorcycles, 4X4's, whiskey, and women...The rest I just wasted. (edited to fit/original phrase by "WIBO")
