    Anyone with pics of a zlet with an oil catch tank?

    Fitted one to mine a while back, but am having trouble with where to mount it properly!

    It fills quite quickly with condensation and oil (half litre every 10 days or so - mostly cold start driving though... ) so would need it somewhere easily accessable to drain.

    Just looking for inspiration. Piping is not a problem, I have loads so it can be almost anywhere (except the boot!!)

    Get a new pipe then or grind it off and get some one to weld a plate over it simple. Did you put wire wool in yours too Rob?

    The DV take off is on the solid chrome pipe, but there is a blocker in there. I will hopefully get a blast at fixing it all tomorrow.

    No wire wool. Doesn't seem to need it, the tank itself condenses perfectly!

    Its a small tank that is attached to the rocker cover breather. It has 2 pipe attachments, one for 'in' and one for 'out'

    The blow-by gasses from the engine are vented into it, condensed into liquid then the clean air is fed either back into the air intake system or vented to atmosphere. It just keeps the engine bay and engine itself clean.
