Oil Splatters

Cub Pilots,

Here' the latest installment in trying to make myself smart (quickly) on continental engines and antique airplanes.

My A65 streaks a slight amount of oil on the windshield and down the left side of the cockpit whenever I fly. They're light splatters, but after two or three hours accumulate to where I have to clean all the plexiglass. It's not really an "oil-loss", but if you guys can make me smart, I'd appreciate it. I understand the physics as to why it's on the left side only, but is it normal? Makes me appreciate why the barnstormers wore goggles and scarfs.
