Damn really!? Should not be leaking a drop. Maybe that rig needs a breather box? Usually when its coming from the front pulley its a sign of too much case pressure. I know we put a new seal there.ColeBModeratorMay 9, 2018 at 8:32 amPost count: 1514
Ya! Type 4 motors suck because of all that tin and so far this thing is leaky. Has really nice power around 60mph though. Seems super happy when cruising and going over the passes.
Rusty, I think that’s why it was trying to break down so much in Moab haha it knew it was home. All it knows how to do in Moab is sit and wait. Haha
doesnt this motor already have a breather tube on top of the motor kind of? We connected a large bit of braided hose to the black box that is on top. A bit of oil was coming out of there too. But maybe we need to add another one coming out of the 1 and 2 cylinder side valve cover like on those race motors?John JonesKeymasterMay 9, 2018 at 9:29 amPost count: 6423

Yeah, put a Empi breather box on the firewall with the 1/2 valve cover vented.
Dual carbs is letting the beast breathe!
I think that is the issue. Where did you say you connected the braided smog hose from the case to?Baja MarkParticipantMay 9, 2018 at 11:39 amPost count: 410ibbrown1ParticipantMay 9, 2018 at 3:46 pmPost count: 94
Cole isn’t spilling all the beans…. what happened to it yesterday??? ??♂️ColeBModeratorMay 9, 2018 at 5:22 pmPost count: 1514
The black breather box with the circle on it on top of the motor. So maybe add another empi one?PeetParticipantMay 9, 2018 at 6:35 pmPost count: 147
Get an Empi breather kit p.n. 8544 and mount it to the firewall tin at the back of the engine on the right side. Connect one hose from the breather on top of the engine to the front of the Empi box. Then connect a hose from the 1,2 side valve cover to the right side of the Empi box and that should do it. Where is that hose coming out of the breather going to now?John JonesKeymasterMay 9, 2018 at 7:07 pmPost count: 6423emileeParticipantMay 10, 2018 at 12:01 amPost count: 50

Had a problem with a spark plug. Emilee called me in a panic and she thought something was really wrong. So I came with a trailer to see what was up and it ended up being a quick fix and sent her on her way.ColeBModeratorMay 10, 2018 at 9:19 amPost count: 1514
I only need that Subaru diesel vanagon in my life… that’s already enough Subaru for me and I haven’t even driven it yet. you’ll have to ask Emilee about putting a Subaru in her bus haha
