Why is the crankcase building up this much pressure? Plugged hose/vent somewhere? I don't know where the vent is on this thing.

This is not unknown. It happened to me on a cold start so I made a mechanical retainer. I ended up making and selling a stack more. I don't do them anymore, but Procycle does. Get one, bolt it on and problem fixed. And for others out there, do it before its a problem as insurance, because when it happens it really is a PITA.
