You may have to install a vacuum pump to evac the crankcase. What are you using the motor in and what purpose?ssonny34 said:I've got a new high horsepower big block chevy and had some questions. Its all shaft mount rocker arms and the valve covers have baffles in them and the breathers are filling with oil. We put tall circle track looking breathers on it instead of shorts and for now the problem has seemed to have been fixed. I was told from the builder that the volume of oil going into the valve train to keep things cool at high rpm's caused this and not to be alarmed. He said that the right way to fix this is to run a breather canister. It doesnt seem to be under pressure just splash he says. Ever heard of this? Engine is 700 plus horse.
Also i noticed a little steam or something coming from the passengerside breather and when I asked the builder he said it was just condensation no worries, not blow by. In my mind, condensation is water and water in the engine is bad. Checked the oil and it looks good though. What do you think? I really need some good opinions from someone who has had engines like this..
Could be a very costly deal. Thanks
