Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

Oil Catch Tanks collect the oil, moisture and blow-by gas that causes carbon and sludge build-up in the intake system and engine to keep them clean even under the hardest driving conditions. An oil catch tank is also an excellent engine dress up item that will give your car a racing image.

DIY Oil Catch Can

Parts Required

"Hikers" anodised aluminium drink flask in your colour choice (Available from outdoor camping stores)
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/1-1.jpg

Straight male threaded 19mm irrigation fitting
90 deg male threaded 19mm irrigation fitting
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/2-1.jpg

Steel scourers
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/3-1.jpg

Tools

    * Drill
    * small drill bit
    * 19mm drill or boring bit
    * Round file
    * Silicone sealant
    * Ball peen hammer

Procedure

Wrap the flask in newspaper to protect the anodised coating. Drill a small hole in the dead center of the bottom of the flask.
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/4-1.jpg

Enlarge this hole with the 19mm bit. File the hole slightly until the threaded section of the 90deg irrigation fitting can be pushed through.
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/5-1.jpg

Apply silicone sealant to the underside of the 'collar' of the irrigation fitting. It is better if the collar is sealed ALL the way around its circumference.
Press fitting down onto bottom of the flask.
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/6-1.jpg

Drill a small hole in the side of the flask, approximately 60-70mm from the top, and in the same direction that your 90deg fitting is pointing.
Enlarge this hole with the 19mm bit.
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/7-1.jpg

Use the ball peen hammer to flatten the flask side surrounding the hole, by tapping around the hole very gently. Be very careful to tap softly, the flask is very soft alluminium. You only need to flatten it so the collar of the fitting sits flush with the side of the flask.
File the hole so the straight fitting can be pushed through.
Apply silicone sealant to the underside of the fitting and press down.
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/8-1.jpg

You now need to see how you will mount the flask. Bear in mind that the flask is mounted inverted, with the 90 deg fitting you have installed in the bottom of the flask now actually at the top. You can either attach an aluminium plate like I have, or use some sort of strap to hold it in your engine bay.
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/RXi_20v/9-1.jpg

Once you have decided how to mount your flask, wash it THOUROUGHLY inside with water, you don't want any small aluminium shavings to remain.
Wait for it to dry and then stuff the flask with steel scourers. Fit as many as you can into the flask, pushing them through the threaded opening with the handle of a screwdriver. Screw the threaded top back onto the flask and invert the flask so the threaded top is at the bottom.

Your catch can is now complete.

Hook up your engine breather and breather return lines so that the top 90deg fitting is where the engine intake breather return is sucking from, and so that the engine breather pipe is connected to the straight fitting near the bottom.
You will need to drain the can of oil periodically (say at every oil change), by simply undoing the threaded 'top', which is now at the bottom of your can.

Note: If you want to fit a breather filter instead of plumbing back into your intake, simply replace the top 90deg fitting with another straight fitting, and attach your filter to this.

How do you install this oil catch pan? Which hoses go where? Why is this mod so important?

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

The oil catch can solves a simple problem from the manufacturer; it transfers the oil back into the engine via the block not the intake. This not only keeps the vehicle within specs of smog but keeps the oil from coating the tops of the pistons. We all know what that does to any tune you have; it causes detonation, a very bad thing for turbo engines.

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

MY OPINION
I think this pic is wrong. the oil catch tank should be keeping the intake seperate from the Breather...

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

I've got a catch tank installed on my 20v, runs from the head to the tank and from the tank to a breather, not going back to the engin.

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

where can I get these "Steel scourers" from ???
I purchased an oil catch tank but it's empty no "steel scousers" or anything inside of it ...
We tapped a hole in the exhaust tappet cover and fed both breathers from both tappet covers into the catch tank.
It has a pipe running from the bottom of the tank to the block.
It has a small filter ontop but if you drive hard then the oil pushes through the filter and messes up the engine bay an bonnet.
I put the intake breather back into the intake mani and all is clean again.
Filling the inside of the tank with these steel scourers should allow me to feed both intake and exhaust tappet cover breathers to the catch tank without messing oil out the filter if i drive hard hey  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/dizzy  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/dizzy
