CCV Mod v.7.3

I know there are several different takes on the CCV mod, but this weekend i took my exhaust-draft CCV off and did a little custom work.

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

Thats a nice clean setup!
I need to do it to, I'm probably not going to bother with a trap though. just run a road draft tube!

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

Kris, have you checked your crank case pressures with that setup? Wondering if the dual CCV helps...

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

What did you use to tap into the oil fill tube? I was advised to do this a couple of weeks ago. Very nice!

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

the only thing i would have done different is put the vent that comes out of the oil trap at the top, and put the inlets below it.

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

No measurements on the CCV pressure, but if Ernest still has it at Smokin i'd take a run with the gauge hooked up...

I used a barb fitting with a 5/8" pipe thread, and a 3/4" nipple, or something close. I got the smallest pipe thread i could for the size of the nipple i wanted, and then holesawed it out, threaded it right into the neck.

Slowleak i have three different grades of steel wool in the canister, coarse, medium, fine at the bottom, and the heavy oil vapors that would cause a drip on the ground would be caught in the canister, sink to the bottom with the drain, and the lighter mist vapors just go right out. Before i started the truck, i disconnected the passenger side hose, and blew through it all the way to the tail pipes, amazingly enough it had very very little restriction, just felt like i was blowing through a 1" hose.

If he's only got the one setup, I can tell you he doesn't have it right now...it's in my garage.

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

One point to think about is there any possibility of freezing in extreme cold weather. I am not saying that it will just for you to consider it.

Re: CCV Mod v.7.3

Kris, as i said over there, it looks great.
For NWSUPRD you can tap the fill tube like Kris did, or you can buy a replacement cap and tap it (see Pics below) and for TRAILERHAULER here is a pic of mine that is "road draft" it is not near as pretty as Kris' and it does use plain old garden hose attachments, but it works.
