ccv mod/cc filter

I bought a crank case filter. Bored out the rubber and drilled a hole in the filter to drain oil it seems to work great. Thoughts?

Got a pic? I'm having a hard time picturing what it is you have...

A "Crankcase Filter"? From where or what?

What I don't like about the whole Filter idea, is that filters clog and a clogged CCV can lead to pressure inside the motor that builds quickly and pushes oil through every seal it can

And I drilled a hole in the bottom of the filter so the oil can drain

I think that you made a mistake. There is no reason to have a filter on the end of a diesel's crankcase vent. It is an exit-only opening unlike a gasoline engine where the PCV system actually draws air into the engine through the CCV which is why the filter is made.

IH designed this engine to be able to vent the crankcase fumes through an open ended tube. Anything else has potential to damage the engine.

Well take a 4.0 for example it uses the ccv to heat the air going into the intake. So when I built a intake for my jeep I used the filter to prevent the engine bay from filling from gases. I looked it up afterwards and that's what I was suppose to do. The gases can pass through the filter. I also made it so if it builds to much pressure the filter will pop out before the pressure hurts the motor. So can I upload pics w/o photo bucket

... this doesn't sound quite right. I put a filter (more of a catch can) on my CCV tube on my 6.4. It is just catching some of the oil before the air goes back into the intake.

I see no point in this. Like stated earlier, the CCV is just a tube that drips oil. You drilled a hole in a filter so that the oil could drip out. What exactly are you filtering, especially when the filter has a hole in it? I don't even get it....

And yes, you can upload pics without photobucket. Click post reply and then scroll down till you see "manage attachments" and then upload. Or if you want an image hosting site that you don't need an account for, just use: TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

All I know is with the filter there is less fumes but the filter is still breathable. But I don't wanna run the risk of over pressure so I'm going to run stainless steel tubing
