crankcase ventilation


i have discovered that vw's dont like having no air filter (read, it got excited and blew oil everywhere)

anyway i want to replace the air filter with something different hasanyone had experience with breather boxes do they help etc or is best to use a sand seal and remove the ventilation system?

The little oil bath air filter fitted to the VW is one of the most efficient units available,over the years I have seen a lot of sports filters fitted in their place and the dust has got through and cut the rings out in no time. Whatever you use make sure that you still let the crankcase breathe so the pressure doesn't build up in the case as this was more likely blocked off when the cleaner was removed.

I generally tend to agree that if you've got a stock carburettor, then the stock oil-bath air cleaner is the best thing to use. They certainly flow more than enough air to not restrict the tiny carb which is under there, and as mentioned they filter the air very effectively and serve as a good place to separate out and collect oil from the crankcase.

Hi
You Have to Vent the engine pressure out somewhere...
If You block off everything then oil will come out the dipstick hole... You need to get the case machined for a sand seal..
having a seal at the pulley would be great....
BUT
You still Need to let the pressure OUT....
I've thought about breather boxes.... and hoses to the tappet covers...
and they seem like a good idea....

if they are are set up correctly they should collect all the moisture that collects under the oil cap...

I did try a nice chromed air filter but have read that when tested, the VW oil bath air filter is the BEST....
NON Restrictive...
air flow is Excellent into the top of the carburetor...

I have seen many people go from chrome back to the genuine VW filter...

I used 5/8 hoses from the top of each rocker cover at the front into a breather box on the firewall, also put in the breather hose from the filler stand. Used a push-in breather (shiny!), no more oil mist, that was on a mild 1640, and warm 2L Kombi panel.

If your engine starts spinning up past 5000, then you might need something a bit more effective. I've used these on hi-po bikes to great effect:

(Am I allowed to post a seller address here? If not, oops!).
For all the racers out there, yes they work brilliantly, and yes, they are MUCH more effective than just a simple PCV.
:cool:

I have found that using 1/2 id hose...
that some oil is blown up the hose....
using even smaller hose was much much worse....


so 5/8 hose would be ideal....

I run a centre mount K&N breather tower connected to both tappet cover's and ther breather outlet on the oil filler, motor is a 2054 and i never have any issue's with crank case pressure, it run's 1/2" id hose and a sand seal.
