/ Blow by #1

This is gonna sound bad but explain to me what blow by is and what is acceptable. I noticed on my 4233 Massey that there is a little oil coming out of the tube that hangs down under neath the engine. It is not dripping but if you touch it you will get oil on your fingers. I notice when you pull it hard you will see some smoke coming from the tube. It doesn't use any oil and has been running fine. I just changed the oil after a 104 hours and the oil seemed gritty. I didn't see any metal flakes in it. I am gonna run it 20 hours and drain the oil and change the filter again and see if it seems gritty again. I am gonna be using it to pull some wagons this fall so it won't be on too heavy of a load for a little while. It has me a little concerned but I guess if I have to over haul it I will. Thats the problem with buying used I guess you never know what you are bringing home until you use it awhile. The biggest lemon of a car I ever owned was one My Mom and Dad traded off. They never had any problems with it and I bought it and it was nothing but problems from the 1st day I brought it home.
