why is there oil dripping out of the valvecover breathers on the nova when the engine is hot?

Is that supposed to happen?

The baffle(s) should be inside the valve cover under the hole(s) that your pcv and breather are connected to. If you don't have them (they look like rectangular metal boxes) then you can either fabicate some or get baffled rubber grommets that go into the holes. I had the same problem a few years back with my stack-injected small block.
