There also is a baffle inside the draft tube that coalesces oil mist to drop 
back into crankcase.  I never heard of these going bad, but I suppose they 
could.  You would see a few drops under tube on ground.  The recommended 
unofficial method of cleaning a draft tube was to remove it and burn out the 
sludge.  I never did this so don't know how much intenal damage it does.  I 
soak them in lacquer thinner or carb cleaner to dissolve sludge.
