Default Valve Cover Vent Mod

My son, Justin (Taildragon) alerted me to a mod some of the folks back east have done to reduce deposits in the intake manifold and throttle body. It is a simple process involving cutting a hose and inserting a small filter in the line. I got all the parts from Harbor Freight for less than $11.
Parts -
2 ea 68211 barb fitting with clamps - $1.99 ea
1 ea 68225 Mini Air Filter - $6.49

The air filter is designed to be under pressure so you must block the drain port to prevent air from being sucked in. I did it with a small section of plastic hose with a rivit inserted in the end.

The interesting thing is that after a day of wheeling, I had over a quarter of an inch of oil in that bowl.

Simple fix, works great! Terry
