Thanks everyone. Got it all sorted and naturally there's a 90% chance of rain today, tomorrow and Wednesday. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) I was half-tempted to drive it anyway...

Got the vented valve covers, Franz. They turned out perfect...thanks again! =D> You may get some PM's from other folks wanting some fab'd up...sorry. Smile Smile Smile

Nice Pete! I'm going to be careful changing clutch cables now. Thats is a new one for me. It would suck to bring a car in the shop for a 10min repair, and end up pulling the engine. #-o

Yeah, I bet those T/O clips were on death's door anyway, so probably better I broke it replacing a cable than out driving. If I have to ever mess with it again I'm stabilizing the T/O lever before releasing the cable.

The vented valve covers seem to be limiting oil slinging from behind the pulley so far. Driven every day this past week and no sign of the familiar rooster tail slung across the breast plate. =D> Thanks again Franz!

How did I miss these?

What's the skinny here, how do they work?

I don't know the exact science; maybe one of the engine guys can explain better. I'm told vented valve covers are in VW service manuals from the '50's for 25 and 36 hp motors as a fix for oil leaking. I think the theory is as engines wear there's a tendency for blow-by which increases case pressure (I think oil galleries can get buildup and oil relief valve can stick too). Anyway that increase in pressure can force oil out from behind the pulley since there's no crank seal. The vented valve covers help equalize the pressure in the case, at least I believe that's the purpose.

I'm not sure, mostly because I'm waffling on which route to take. I have everything at home where I could bolt it all to the current motor and probably have it rolling in one weekend (even have the Okrasa elbows for the air cleaners). That's been on my mind a lot lately as I see those parts sitting. I'd want to send the carbs out to Joe Ruiz so he can do his thing fixing the as-built deficiencies they all supposedly come with, and I'm considering a 3 angle valve job on the heads to get the valves to seat a little better though that's not absolutely necessary. The keep it simple option is looking more attractive.

Other option is getting the CW crank and hi-po cam from WW and incorporate that into a new block and build from there. Does Painter's do 36'ers? :-k

So, those valve covers have vents at the top,
And just have tubes that snake down the middle, in the groove under the bail?

You're letting them just drip from the bottom of the tube,
Or are you catching with a hose from there?

Some kind of baffle plate at the top, under where the tube connects? :-k :-k :-k

Looks like a sweet idea.
Dealing with the traditional style of hoses is a PITA,
Especially if you are fool enough to use those silly short hose barbs with the O-rings that aren't even barbed..

Been looking for better ideas for venting blow-by...
Master Franz has some new/different tricks for sure.
