I would like to find a can with at least a 1" connection. With the new breather assembly/turbo drip tank that am installing, the vent from the drip tank will not be hooked up further more eliminating yet another way for the oiling system to breath. Any input on this guys? Philip
Yes, my mechanic also agrees with the 1" theory... without it, could cause pressure to build in crank case...
