Hey there Brandon,

The oil would have blown through the element in my case, I believe. I needed a way to allow the oil to hang out until the engine shut down, at which time it would drain back into the v/c area.

I've run it a few weeks now and There is absolutely no oil in the breather anymore. Before, it would have so much it would actually pour over the lower lip of the breather.

thanks,

Pre-Assembly




Finished Product








I may put a back on it and bracket the two boards together for some added stability but that can wait. For now, it's in tight.

I went to sears and bought two plastic craftsman tool boxes for 9 bucks each
I bolted them to each fender and will put locking latches on them
They fit perfect and dont stick up over the body
Great for storing all the OBA accessories and winch accessories. Theres room behind them to place revovery straps and jumper cables

I made a speaker box out of MDF and had it ARMA coated. No storage, just a speaker box.

No write up right now, I made 5 of these in 2004 so it would take some deep thought to remember how I did it. I tried to sell them on ebay and through a website I built, didn't get any takers so I bagged it.

I have a similar setup on my Aircooled VW and it's great.
I used a high low tube setup inside the can so no matter the direction of flow no liquid gets into the intake air stream.

No more oil in the breather.

Sure, it's not a Dana 60, but it saves me a quart of oil every 1,000 miles as well as countless fouled plugs.
