1983 Volvo md17d oil leak

My diesel used to just burn oil. Now it leaks it too! Anyone have any ideas what this "cap" looking bit is? Its weeping oil from there when running.

Maybe blowby crankcase pressure is increasing or whatever acts as PVC is plugged. Gasket on that plug is not up to the task.
