Looks good, I'm interested! Will it fit cars with two-shock lids? Any baffle(s) inside between inny/outy? Have you tried it on 964/993 - my wrench says known breather oil puke problem with those if you fill past half-way on dipstick... he just uses a soda bottle on his track car
Cheers

Catch Can

I'm interested in one of these for my 73 track car.
It would sure look better than the old brake fluid can I've been using!
Please PM when you have one available......

I suspect the right hose goes to the tank. Where does the left hose go?

Interesting! Can you take some wide shots of the setup so we can see how the lines are routed? I am guessing the left hose goes to the case breather?

hi guys the rhs goes to the engine case breather and the right hand side to the oil tank . this can vary a bit if you have a 72 or different oil tank set up.
The unit also needs to breathe so there is no pressure in the case , so the cap will be either off or drilled in the centre .

i will do a full set of photos once i have the carbs mounted on this car and everything set up . the units should be available in above 5 weeks , i'll advise on this thread

Revise the oil path.

High velocity blowby exits the crankcase breather. Thus, like the factory setup, this hose should first connect to the oil tank which helps separate most of the oil from crankcase pressure.

From the tank, another large hose leads to the catch can for additional oil/air separation. The other catch can hose leads to either a breather, then to atmosphere or simply provides a path to the intake tract to reburn. Careful about venting to atmospheric. There may be situations (e.g. high G loads, excessive blowby, etc.) that may cause the tank to fill to capacity and/or the engine to puke a larger-than-normal volume. This could result in liquid lube exiting near the RR tire and a wild ride.

Hi John,

I wish I had have seen your thread a couple of days ago, I just had an oil catch can shortened to fit in the engine bay.

Cheers,

Harry.

Yeah to expand on what sherwood said I thought the whole point of a catch can was to eliminate the hose from returning the oil fumes to the intake. The fumes contaminate the air fuel mixture and lower performance. I thought I noticed a marked difference when I added a catch can and plugged the fume return on a tired 3.0 CIS motor. The more tired the motor the more blow by and the more contamination.

with the case breather to the catch tank and the oil filler breather to the catch tank we have no return to the intake and engine works better .
