So Ken offered his assistance. Apparently the drivers side has a pvc valve on that 1" line coming out of the valve cover. Without those baffles the motor is sucking oil straight out of the motor and dropping it into the intake. So I will be hooking that catch can up to that line. I am also going to mod this can to have an external sight gauge to know how much oil I have in the can so no guessing.

Dave it might be worth trying a hot mixed top coat of clear in a test area and see if it helps cure the stuff underneath and hardens

Yeah that?s pretty much a no go.  The next layer would cure on top and not penetrate. Plus it?s long past it?s recoat time frame of 16 hours. Surface needs sanded which can?t happen with wet paint, Guy is pretty hosed now

Ok, pictures....

So I don?t think there is a pvc valve going to the air box. In the upper right hand of this pic is a roughly 1 inch diameter tube that comes from drivers side valve cover then drops into upper intake manifold. Bottom pic shows some oil buildup at the joint where the stock tube had broke & I fixed it with a pipe nipple & couple of clamps when I swapped motor out.

I don't remember the baffles being removed.

I think you answered your own question.
The breather tube isn't as important as the pcv tube, if it has one. Might be better to rig the suction tube side first... possibly to the catch can.

Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

Yeah, no aftermarket valve covers for this pig. So the stock baffles were busted out by me, the engine builder was supposed to supply valve covers another thing he didn?t do.

It has what looks like a pvc tube which goes to top end or engine side of filter box ( haven?t looked close enough to see if pvc valve is there though?). What are you talking about breather tube? Do you mean breather filter on new catch can? As far as suction tube side are you referencing making that line (pvc ish one) go vertical more then over to catch can? I think I will do that btw.

Sounds like that motor was built loose or they lined up all the rings (yep, seen that).

As to smog compliant, that normally means a "closed system" meaning the oil vent would be a no go, but should be OK with the cap when needed.

The stock 3.8?s built in Mexico were documented to have had the rings lined up. As far as being loose it is possible with this builder I believe. Anyhow for $50 I?m going to install this and see what happens.

It?s worth noting I have plenty of oil in the vent line that this may very well be what is happening though. This motor uses roller rockers and to get those to fit we had to remove the stock oil splash baffles from up inside the stock valve covers so I don?t think it?s a stretch under high rpms to see that oil extend into the catch can. Maybe I should extend the vertical column up some where it exits the valve cover? I think I?ll do this too when I add the catch can.

Don, my welder had one of these (a large one like yours) and he started with two separate runs. Granted he was heating a 40 x 60 insulated shop too however in the end as you don?t want your garage, shop or work space overly warm what he did was ran it to the house heat exchanger first then in return to wood burner he ran the water through the exchanger to the shop. It kept the shop comfortable. This way worked best for his situation, something to consider maybe.

Now that I'm concerned w/ all things oil related, please explain what that is and what it does?

So I do not have any current oil leaks. My motor for all purposes should not be worn out and using oil such as bad valve seals and or rings etc. big assumption there with knowing who builder was.

However, it runs good. If I run low rpms 2500 or less and I?ve done those for a couple tanks of fuel I get no change on dip stick reading. If I run high rpms 3k or higher I see it change pretty quick so the oil is going somewhere under high rpms.

I pulled the air box top today, I have oil buildup in the line for the valve cover vent. So my premise is that I?m building pressure in the crankcase under high rpms and it?s blowing out valve cover vent and digesting it into the intake then thru the motor.

The oil catch can is a vented can with a valve on the bottom. So valve cover vent line goes into this, oil separates & is caught in can. Then another line presumably clean air goes to the air box.

What I purchased today
https://www.ebay.com/itm/300ml-BAFFLED-OIL-CATCH-CAN-RESERVOIR-TANK-W-BREATHER-FILTER-Hose-/282628974566

Note: this model can be used with out the vent by capping it with provided plug, assuming I need to remove that vent to be emissions compliant? Maybe someone with more emissions experience JR etc can chime in?

So I?ve had some oil missing with this motor. I?ve diagnosed it to high crankcase pressure (no I?m not referencing H again, sorry to get your hopes up Ken). I had noticed when I run high rpms with this motor the oil vanished from the dip stick. Since I swapped that rear axle to 5:43 gears and have yet to do front axle and larger tires I?m noticing this oil situation more. So today I ordered an oil catch can off of eBay, should be here next week and I?ll install that and keep you all updated.

Sorry, late to the party. Is the motor actually damaged or just the pickup plugged? Or you don?t know yet?
I think JR hit it on the head in his earlier post and the pickup is clogged from debris. we'll know hopefully this weekend, but it went from no pressure, and pretty healthy lifter clack, to some oil pressure and barely noticeable tick after 2 days of sitting at the shop. I'm leaning metal is not from my motor and probably still salvageable. we'll drop the pan and mechanically clean the pickup and inspect the o ring as well as run some seafoam and new, known clean oil through it and see what happens.

Tate, my guess is the motor is ok. Clean it good & have a good mechanic look it over like Charles stated (third party not you, no offense) you made need him in court....

do you have a backhoe on one of those green machines?  how are you digging the lines to the house?
Not going to bury them I think

Boiler only has to be five feet from the house, so what 7-8 feet of insulated line? I should be fine

I have read quite a bit on this already, and many others left the lines exposed for a year or more and the unit worked just fine. Heat loss is almost non existent.

7 to 8 foot and you aren?t going to bury the lines? Really?  :rolleyes:

Alot of the farms and houses out in the country have those. They aren't too popular with people who have neighbors nearby as the smoke blows into their place. However, if I ever build a house I'm getting one of those. Digging trenches aren't hard.

A lot of places like what I envision Don to have as a home place have restrictions on them that they need to have stacks a certain height to get smoke above neighbors.

Took the family 3hrs roughly up to steamboat springs. We hiked a couple trails before lunch then ate at a great Mexican restaurant there in town. After lunch we strolled the downtown shops. One downside was all the smoke from a local wildfire that is going on. During our hike we had a chinook fly over head with the water ball.

CIEMR / Raising a self thinking, head strong conservative daughter or three
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:44:26 PM »
Long ago my Dad told me something that has stuck with me thru the years. He told me "the problem with you is that you understand how the systems works too well and someday it is going to bite you in the butt." It's amazing how different each child can be in personality. My oldest Baylee takes after me and hardly disagrees with anything I say. In all she is a great kid, hard worker and determined. I couldn't ask for more out of a daughter really. Then along comes Shelby, and she is the most hard headed stubborn and demanding child on the planet. That phrase my Dad stated all those years ago seems to pop into my head weekly when I'm dealing with her. If I say left she says right and has been challenging from day one. Most days I'm pretty happy with her and then there are those other days. In all I have tried to instill a sense of independence with each of my three. Along with that a level head and someone who always questions why, granted that can be irritating sometimes to a Dad who wants it done now and that is all that needs to be stated.


So fast forward to Shelby's freshman year of high school fall of 2018. Baylee is a Junior and the high school in their further left leaning progression has enacted a few new rules. One of which has been a color coded by grade lanyard that is to be worn around the neck of each student. They have always had a student ID, so that is nothing new and it does things for them such as letting them into all home games if you buy that option for your child etc. The new part is the lanyard and having to wear it. Much to Shelby's dismay the campus supervisors mainly Mrs M (think rent a cop but not near as much responsibility and way more energetic) have daily told Shelby to wear this lanyard since school started. Shelby's response has been to say "ok" then not put it on and keep walking. She has always had this god given ability to let things roll off her shoulder, at times it even gets to the point I wonder if she has any ounce of empathy. Truth be known she has a lot and things do bother her but she would never let you know it.

Last spring after the parkland incident there was that whole nationwide school walkout. Well, the liberals in charge here thought it was great and actually promoted the idea. By doing so they kind of dug their own hole a bit. So Shelby since about the second week of school has decided she was going to wage a one man war on the lanyards. What is one to do when they are uncomfortable and do not match your outfit?

Early on her and Baylee came to me and asked for my opinion. I stated well, walk outs are the cool thing now so why not start there? You know use their stupidity against them. We discussed many aspects of the operation. The first and foremost would to be able to deny in case the school admins found out prior and wanted to take retribution. The main problem being Baylee does not have the personality to deny to the death. It's just not in her nature, I told them that if two people know then it's not a secret. Shelby took this to heart and let the discussion die, or so I thought. Early this last week she comes to me privately and had decided in order to protect her older sister that she would be doing this on her own. So knowing the camera system layout and doing her due diligence she had a plan to spread fliers. This is her flier below.



We again discussed her detailed plan and she decided to execute starting on Tuesday. Phase one was to dsitribute these in the girls bathrooms throughout the day. As of mid day she had texted me saying someone was picking up the bathrooms between classes. Her assumption was that it was Mrs M. picking up these fliers. I told her she had better quit for the day. She came home and we discussed phase two which was spreading the word via social media. She set up a privated encrypted account and proceeded to spread the word via a few pages that her fellow students visist daily.

To Shelby's dismay the whole walkout thing never really took off like she had envisioned. Then this morning I get texts from both Baylee and Shelby. "We no longer have to wear lanyards!" Apparently, Mrs M made an announcement over the school intercomm stating it was no longer going to be an enforced policy of having to wear the lanyards. Each student still needed to have their ID on them which was no different than any other year.

So this afternoon the girls come home and Baylee is a bit annoyed we did not include her. I had to explain to her that her little hard headed sister was protecting her and giving her denaibility. Shelby then gave me her theory that the threat of a walkout over these lanyards was enough to make the campus supervisors aka Mrs M back off enforcing this lanyard policy.

Needless to say Shelby all 5'4" of her is walking a little taller at the moment......

So I sell excess stuff on Craigslist. For those that do not it can be quite the experience or headache depending.

As of today I listed a set of snow tires and wheel from my wife?s Lexus. Per the normal you get scammers contacting you who want to send you a certified check and then have you ship them your item via a supposed broker service etc. after you deposit their check. I?m assuming this gives them account info of your bank and allows them to withdraw money? I?m assuming here as I really never took the time to research it. Anyhow I get tired of telling them to pound sand. So now I just tell them yes said item is for sale. Then they ask for my name and address which I have posted below.

Here is my full name and address

Al Coholic

Hell, MI. 48169

On a similiar note I have a friend who once had an unpleasant run in with a female judge during his divorce. He used to have these scammers send their check to her office.
