Hornet CCV mod - new oil leak

Greetings . . .and a question for the group. I just did Hornet's CCV mod. Looks like a great product, had good instructions, and was easy to install. My question is, before the mod, I had little or no oil leaking. The next day after the mod I now have a small pool of oil under the engine. It looks like its coming down above and on the passanger side of the oil pan and even further back at the transmission. I checked all connections and there are no leaks there. I can not see any oil in the vally. Any thoughts on where this may be coming from and what caused it. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Are you sure it's oil and not fuel? There is a metal clip at the rear of the pass head that secures a fuel line. That clip commonly rubs-through and causes a fuel leak. A dry valley eliminates a lot of stuff...

I would think the installation of the CCV kit wouldn't have anything to do with a leak unless something got "disturbed" as you were working on stuff

It's definetly oil. I went back and checked all the CCV lines to make sure there were no crimps . .assuming that could cause some back pressure. All looks fine. Any other thoughts?

Thanks for the feedback thus far. It's not coming from the mod itstelf. I rechecked the doghouse assuming it may be an out of place O-ring and it's all dry around the dog house. And, it appears to be dripping down on the opposite side of the engine than the ccv. I also went back to make sure I attached the correct hose to the corresponding cannister connection. If something in the install process or equipment has caused a CCV restriction would that cause an oil leak somewhere else?

Check to make sure the CCV mod canister is not restricted. IMO opinion it could be made better internally.

Return the CCV to stock and see if it stops. Or better yet, just route the fumes to the atmosphere as IH intended.
