Havent fooled with tractor light mount...  Need to mount off road lights on one ton first...

Add a second hook so it blends together.  Nice, cute little bumper though.  Right up your alley... :popcorn:

Well, it?s all black so it blends well.  :tongue:

Symmetry ain?t in my vocabulary & it?s already a pig so we ain?t adding more unnecessary weight even if it?s less than 5#.

I?m feeling unappreciated after spending countless hours designing that tractor light mount you haven?t utilized in 4 months now..... :popcorn:

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.

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?

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.

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.

I think Ken is right.  PCV to the can, can to the intake.  Separates oil into the can.  Will give you a quick way to determine if that?s where the oil has been going.

Could be worse, you could be making oil in an LB7....

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.

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.

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.
