Oil Bath Air Cleaner on 850

What would make oil come out of one of these air cleaners, really made a mess on my wiring behind there. I'll have to check closely, might have been a tad overfilled, fill mark is clear, thought the last time I cleaned and refilled it, oil level was correct.

There was some wiring to be done anyhow, was adding a 30 watt rear worklight to the light circuit which I now believe I foolishly used a 30 amp buss fuse in the circuit, was getting hot, contacts must get oxidized when wet, resist current and heat, the first one melted, so I went to a splashproof ATC fuse, turned lights on, wire is cool. I mostly use larger wire sizes for safety, but all the oil, dirt and goldenrod seed accumulated from last year, way too much fuel for a fire, need to stop the oil leak or it from apparently blowing out, does not appear to be coming from the motor, but still possible.

Additionally, besides level, I may have used a 30 wt oil in the oil bath, detergent oil, I don't believe I used whats in the motor, 15W/40 Rotella in the oil bath. TSC across the road does have quarts of 30 wt non detergent, which I always thought was more appropriate for oil bath air cleaners as it settles contaminants out vs suspending them for the oil filter or encapsulates to protect the engine, wonder if non detergent would be better that whats in there, don't think its foaming or anything like that.
