The filter option is a trial, the problem with a filter set up is it's below your snorkel, so water can be ingested by the motor through it, I have mounted it bonnet level to keep it high. I don't do much deep water crossings and if you keep a good bow wave then it should be ok. The Kit comes with a plug and o ring that is screwed into the filter thread if you wish to change at any time, it would take 2 mins to swap it over.
I wanted the can to have no chance of pressurising, especially as both motors are well over the 250k mark and fuming as you would expect. So I'll run the filters and see how each truck goes and how much oil the can collects over time, then I might swap the filter for the plug, if all is working well, the monitor the oil collection again.
Crank fumes into the engine just pollute the intake air charge, reducing it's potential to fire at it's maximum, so it is ideal to minimise the anount of fumes and the air bourne oil mist as much as possible. Most heavy trucks on the road still use the old draft tube method with just dumps fumes and oil directly onto the road, just like cars did only 30 odd years ago. The catch can stops the oil ending up on the road and stops the engine burning the oil which gives you that blue smoke we all hate to see as well as stopping oil clogging up turbo air hoses, intercoolers and stops the leaks you get out of the turbo housing and silicone hose joints etc that we constantly see on turbo motors.

Chris (Locktup) scored me a custom quarter drop pitman arm to try and eliminate the problem I have been having when the spring flexs up and fouls the draglink ball joint that attaches to the pitman arm.
The new pitman arm is perfect and all the fouling issues and steering binding has gone. Awesome! Thanks to Chris and his mass of knowledge. You're a good mate and run a beaut business, cheers buddy!

Thanks Dean and Dave..........now back to normal

Shane, yep mates do exactly that.

Well, what has happened recently.
I chucked out the old buggered Lightforce 170's and whacked on some HID's, now I can see in the dark a lot further.
Changed those old 55w Halogen tray lights that used to drain the battery when setting up camp and shoved on a pair of little 3w LED shooters, twice the light and miles less power useage.
