oil catch can

I know I should spend my money on a billet catch can but I don't have that kind of money. I want to get one asap. I was looking on e bay and found 15 dollar ones. I also found a 30 dollar one that I really like. I'll get a link soon. Has anyone gotten one of e bay that is a good one?

Will a cheap one hurt? Doubtful. But most real cheap CC's use a ball of steel mesh they shove into the main tank, and it's a PITA to clean. Versus a BT, or others that keep the mesh separate to make it easier to clean.

I'd save up and buy a BT, and keep it for years. But if money's tight, you could get by just fine with the eBay one, but it likely won't hold up as well as a quality unit.

Hmmm .. That input hose is 9mm which is about 1/4" vs. 1/2" to 3/4" inch.

9mm is a 1/10" larger than 1/4", but your point is still valid!

The point is that item is made for a small engine in a warm climate.

That small tube line may clog up and plug up, or freeze up which would them plug up the whole engine ventalation system which would be really bad and likely very very expensive unless the hose blew out, but that looks like a marine reinforced hose, so the hose will not break something much more expensive will break.

9mm is 23/64 inches ... point is vapor systems need 1/2" through 1" tubing so they don't plug up.

The best setup I have seen here it the pipe into the exhaust system, there was a good write up on it. This is how marine systems that are made not to fail are set up. When you are offshore help is usually far away. The parts for this setup were not very much.
