I'll be interested to know if yours is the same, I did boot it a few times on my outing so that run had a lot of pressure built up for the oil cap test.

That clattering sound when you pull the oil cap, is the vac pump not lifters, they all do that. to check your crank case pressure, pull the dip stick with the engine running, if you have excessive pressure it will shoot oil up the dip stick tube.
