If you don't have one i suggest getting one. Since fitting mine i have done about 150 miles of rather spirited driving.

Just drained it and this is what poured out



That wasn't even all of it. Alot of it missed the cup and made a mess on the drive

I work in a garage

Well at least its not getting plumbed into the intake manifold anymore

Wonder what could be causing it? Blockage? High oil pressure?
I have blocked the smaller rocker cover vent. Only using the larger one on the right.

Ah my bad

Would look for a blockage first as that is the most likely cause of high pressure. God knows after that.

On the rocker cover there is crankcase ventilation pipes that go into the inlet manifold. These pipes spit oil that goes into the inlet (bad). I fitted an oil catch tank in the pipe to stop this (good).

What is the breather mod? Drilling holes? Can you do it on small blocks?

Yes it involves drilling holes in the underside of the rocker cover so any oil about to spill down the inlet is leaked back onto the cams. Has to be done carefully and any swarf removed and watch how you do with the sealer and screws when re attaching the plate you have drilled holes in.

I havent heard of it needing doing on small blocks, most common on the XE engines.
