Oil Catch Tank

I'd been meaning to fit an oil catch for a while.  Then a new OBP one came up on eBay locally and the price was absolute bargain.  A guy had bought it for his Lancia Statos build, but had changed his mind; he no longer wanted a 1 litre tank and was going to use a 2 litre tank instead.

Mounting the tank was relatively straight forward, but before the pipe from the crankcase could be connected, the internals needed to be removed from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve.

The valve itself just pulls out of the rubber bung in the crankcase.  To get the internal of the valve out I ran the angle grinder around the end using a very thin metal cutting disk, 0.8mm I think.

The internals were then discarded and the valve reinserted into the rubber bung in the crankcase.

Here is the catch tank with the crankcase and camshafter cover pipes plumbed in.

Then finally an air filter was added to the top side exit.
