ccv mod concerns

So i am about to do my ccv mod...everything i have read says to make sure it flows downhill. I have a 99 f350 and the rear end sits noticeably higher in the back. I would like to run the hose all the way to the rear of the truck. However in doing so, it will be running uphill the length of the frame. Any recommendations?
Also when spinning the doghouse is there a gasket i need to buy that seals the doghouse to the cover?

Use the same gasket, route the hose over the master cylinder and down. Not sure how to get it to the back of your truck. Mine ends just behind the cab along the frame rail.

Re: ccv mod concerns

If you route it over the booster the oil will run back in the valve cover. Mine just spits on the ground.

Re: ccv mod concerns

Yea i read to make sure it goes over the brake reservoir, but running uphill after that isnt as big a deal then?

Any low spots have the possibility of collecting moisture and oil which can freeze in cold weather which will blow oil seals.

Don't run it to the back of your truck for now. Just dump it below the cab. Mine empty's just after the fuel pump and I have no issues in the cab as far as smell or anything.

Re: ccv mod concerns

I may just do that. I could always put a filter/catch can there too and call it good.

Re: ccv mod concerns

I've ran it on a few peoples trucks to the end of the cab without any ups but, the smell was too much for a couple of them, so I ended up rerouting to the spare tire - no problems to report yet. I actually reinstalled the ccv on my van when the new motor went in. The builder insisted on negative crank-case pressure, so a bung was welded into the intake, then a custom 3/4"i.d. hose was made to connect it to the dog house.

Re: ccv mod concerns

Mine may be a bit more annoying, but I opted not to flip the dog house, and just ran the hose straight down by the wheel well and hooked it onto the front axle by the pumpkin. There, I know I will not have any low spots. A bit more blow by smell at idle, but it works.
