CCV Mod

Howdy my 6.0 Peeps!

Was thinking about designing me a CCV Mod based a few that I've seen out there (thanks Stoker67) as well as referring to knowledge on a tractor that I have which uses the same sort of filtering system for the air cleaner. Attached is my design.

Basically speaking, I would take a 3 inch conduit 5 inches (or so) long and on the top, cap it off and install a 1" elbow. This would be the input from the crankcase breather. Then on the inside of this conduit attached to the 1" elbow would be a 1" pipe that would run about 3 inches into the conduit. Stuffed (but not tightly) around the 1 inch pipe would be stainless steel course scrubbing material (much like what you use to clean pots/pans). Not fine stuff like brillow pads. Then the bottom is capped off with a drain at the bottom. Approximately 1" from the top of the conduit/cap, install a 1" nipple which would act as the outlet and return back to the air intake.

The theory is this...."dirty" breather air enters the top of the canister, goes down the pipe. On the return trip, air has to travel up thru the stainless steel scrubbing material which traps the oil as it rise to the upper 1" nipple for a return to the motor. The excess oil in the stainless steel would drip to the bottom of the cap where it can be drained periodically.

Like I said, this is very similar to a design on my JD 4010 air filter system which uses an oil bath for an air filter except here, the goal is to remove the oil not use it as a filter.

Thoughts? I bet this can be made fairly inexpensively.

Your too late. NCHornet already makes and sells the exact same thing.

I was figuring on building one almost exactly the same. I was going to use ABS pipe and plastic scrub pads. If just figured if a piece of scrub pad broke off it would be better to have plastic go through the turbo ratther than SS.

No issue with patents ect as long as you don't sell them.

Yeah...I looked at that one but it's like 100 bucks. Thought I could make about the same thing at a fraction of the cost. Not denying anyone their share to make a buck....just with times be tight these days, if I can save 50 I will.

With your drawing, I wasn't sure if you were considering it as a business idea. Just was making you aware, that's all.

No doubt you could do it cheaper, but he's already done the running around and assembly, and uses the profit to pay for medical expenses. I bought one, but never installed it. I just decided to dump mine.
