    Default Oil catch tank 2

    Looking at the pipes, anyone know where this T piece pipe links into it seems to be under the inlet manifold???

    Can you see where it goes I am pretty sure it goes to the crank case breather

    I can't I will have to get a mirror and torch to see if I can track it seems a bit odd as the oil gets into the inlet system from somwhere and cannot figure if this is it or not.

    I've just had a look at mine basically that t piece links the camshaft breather and crankshaft breather which is Fed into the seperator then the vacuum combined from the pressure in the oil system forces the gasses and
    oil through the seperator which is supposed to seperate the oil which is drained back into the sump via the pipe at the bottom of the seperator

    The last pipe goes from the top
    over the engine into the intake pipe before the turbo this creates a constant vacuum which sucks through the oil mist through the seperator but this is only there due to emission laws as the positive pressure in the oil system is enough to push it through the oil seperator this is the pipe you intercept on my other pics to vent to atmosphere this is the only way oil can enter your inlet system as the seperator is not good at all

    The only other possible way you will get oil into your intake manifold is if you hve worn turbo oil seals which will leak oil into the system hope this clears up all confusion any more questions feel free to ask

    Cool thanks Winnie, the engine has 19K on it I believe this is about right looking at the condition of it, so looks all set to start the conversion.

    Yeah follow my pics in my thread and you can't gonwrong will take about 10mins start to finish

    And once done you will have no more oil at all in your inlet system and no inlet manifold probs later on if you blank your egr valve too

    Nice low milage example too so turbo oil seals will be spot on and no leaks there then
