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?
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.
Haven't noticed any drip yet, though over time I'm sure some oil vapor will build and do that just like the current oil fill draft tube. I think the vented valve covers were standard on early 356's. I don't have the knowledge to know if this would be a viable fix for 40 hp motors and up though.
