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.



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.

Well it's not like you're seeing 4000 rpms on a regular basis. Or at all. I wonder if the 36er fills up the 3/4 valve cover with oil? Probably not to the top where the vent originates.

Porsche 356 style.

I agree that they are probably not the best for hi-po. Vintage correct look, simple and effective.

Not yet; haven't really had the opportunity to split town that hasn't involved needing to take everything that 6 and 2 year olds require. I've put 7k-8k on it, but it's all been my normal commuting mostly. I wouldn't be opposed to the right bus but it would be in addition to the Ghia, not a replacement of it. I may be buried in the Lowlight. Smile
