I don't think that is an overhead cam motor, so those tubes should contain the pushrods.

its not the pushrod tubes its a u shape tube on the top of the motor behind the carb. I think I may have found out the prob From what I have been reading it seems like its a vent tube of som sort and the oil level is to high so its sucking oil out and leaking through the overflow. also it looks like the prievious owner put it on wrong. Ill keep you guys posted
