Question CCV Mod?

Being doing some research and looking around at past posts.. Wanting to do the ccv mod and wanted some input on how to and the best way. Should i do a diy mod or buy the ccv mod from stealth auto (NC Hornet). And ive also got an oil leak on my truck, ive checked the turbo, hpop and i cant seem to find where its coming from? It is coming down the back of the block on both sides and running down the middle of the oil pan and around the front of the transmission? Anybody got any ideas what it mite be leaking from?

Re the CCV mod, it's a piece of cake. Remove the "Dog House" (CCV Can) and reposition it facing the firewall. Run a long length of 5/8" (I Think) hose up and over the power brake unit then down along the frame behind the cab so you don't get fumes in the cab.

Be careful that you don't get any sags in the line as oily moisture will collect and eventually cause back pressure. The reason that you run the line over the top of the power brake unit is to allow oily moisture to run back into the engine.

The Oil leak:
First, clean the valley squeaky clean using..BrakeKleen, Simple Green, etc and a whole bunch of paper towels to mop it dry. You will probably find all kinds of stuff in there from missing wrenches, rats nests, etc. Really, really clean and dry.

Using a "Bright" flashlight and a good mirror, start the engine and start looking. Check the "Weep" hole at the back of the lift pump, check very carefully around and under the fuel filter, all hose fittings and especially the sensors on the drivers' side of the fuel filter. Also check the bottom of the filter for holes. Standing water and crud has been known to eat holes in the bottom of the canister.

Be meticulous and patient and you will find the leak,

Good luck,
Rog

Re: CCV Mod?

With respect to the CCV mod...I double the point about being careful about sags in the line...especially if you are in a cold climate..ie...it gets below freezing. A frozen shut line due to ice creates a big...messy problem.

early 99, old, slow but paid for.

Re: CCV Mod?

You can also check where your dipstick goes into the oil pan. I have had a small leak there for years.

Dont forget to plug the hole-up thats in the intake from where the hose used to be plugged into or replace it with 4'' tubing. ITP diesel has a very nice ccv mod.kit.

Re: CCV Mod?

Agrees with Dixieland-->ITP has a nice mod kit. This is the one I installed.
Just remember: If your 7.3L has alot of miles on it, ya {might}& might not have the same problem I have. A steady stream of smoke, and oil droppings every time ya park the truck for an extended time. I wonder what the inside of my intercooler looks like?

With the kit from Stealth->(NC Hornet) You will not have the smoke or leaking oil-->kinda nice. But ya pay for that extra nice.

good idea's except the weep hole thing. the lift pump is on the frame rail. I would guess it's the fuel filter housing leaking. I have seen this on several SD, it is enough of a problem Alliant power made a kit with the O-rings to fix the problem. Also I would try to just run the hose down for a few days to see if you are getting enough residue that you need to run it over the brake booster. I had 90,000 on my 03 & I have 227,000 on my early 99 and neither one leaves any residue.
