I routed that back to the crank case via the front cover. It vents the crank case directly, and recirculates captured oil back to the pan.
That's really not such a good idea. There's a lot more than just oil in there--oil, water, fuel, and dirt. Not something I'd want to put back into the engine.

Just put a vacuum cap on the drain on the Husky filter and it will stop the leak.
I also seen some filters in the Northern Tool catalog that would work that have a different drain valve.
Only issue is you really need to check to see what some of these are rated at vacuum-wise. Some won't work well.

I have an oil seperator, but the hose going from the seperator to the intake still has oil in it! The arrow on the seperator is pointing towards the intake and a vacuum cap is on the bottom.
Yes, some will still get by. The filter element doesn't catch everything.
