220 gpu crankcase venting

Post by kdb396 »

I have just ran this motor for one summer and I am presently rebuilding it does anyone have any suggestions for venting the crankcase I currently have two tubes that blow out the back of the cage and make a mess of the rudders is there a way to vent it with out losing so much oil

Here's a picture of one similar to JAMES. He runs it from the accessory case to an air/oil separator and then into the exhaust. If you have good cylinders you won't need the air/oil separator.

Had a catastrophic blade failure, as a result it pulled my filler tube out and into the river.
Needing a new filler tube for my 220 GPU. Thanks in advance.

I run a oil catch box, see pic, I only use the Vent from the fill opening the other is blocked off. I’ve run for a year, never have any oil residue even in the opening of the vent.
