Hesco has the Elbows, grommets and tubes.and I would think Q`tec or 4WD etc would also.

No problem.
The factory system can work very well. Over the years things get plugged up. Lines rot and folks band aid the system together. If you follow the links. Get some fresh elbows and grommets. Route the hoses the way they are supposed to be you will be golden. Yeah it`s a bit of work and a few bucks but well worth it.

Make sure you clean the baffles in the valve cover.

I would do one cause you dont know how clogged the passages are so i would at least do half oil half diesel in it to break it up run it for ten minutes then drain it and refill it prolly 5 or 6 times then it might be good but you dont know if its gonna be good or not

Block off the area the push rods come up through (passenger side) with some rags and go to town. Do you best to wire up as much as you can. Then hit the valve cover with oven cleaner or degreaser of choice. Remove the baffles and clean`em up.

Because of the sludge...............not uncommon...............the oil is "pooling" in the head/valve cover rather then draining back down to the pan. Another reason you are getting the blowby.

An oil change would be a good idea to help remove any gunk that may have fallen into the pan.

Then run it like you stole it, no worries..

I hate when that happens.................:

Are the grommets to big or the elbows ? If grommets you might luck out at the hardware/autoparts store with a different ID/OD.
