ccv mod routing

Is there a better way I can route my hose to the drain can ? The way I have the hose routed currently ,I have to fight to get my degas bottle in place because of the way the hose turns,it rubs the bottom of the bottle,please see picture. Its the top hose,the bottom one is not so bad.thanks

I ran mine above the FICM and over the top of the degas bracket. Are those 1/2" lines? Everything I've read says 3/4" minimum to get enough flow.

The lines are 5/8 but now I am rethinking cause I have read that too about them being 1 inch but the kit I have said the 5/8 are plenty.Is it possible you could send me a picture of your routing. Thanks....

I can't, sorry, truck is at my dad's shop 6 hours away. Basically I turned the elbow in the valve cover 180 degrees so it goes up, then routed it around the top of the FICM, up over the degas bracket for a high point to make oil drain back to the engine, then ran it down to the frame at the rear of the cab and vent it to atmosphere. I used 3/4" hose for it all.

you want to use gravity, rotate the pre bent ford hose so it points down, then the rest of your 3/4" hose will vent down

The hose doesn't need to go down all the way, there just can't be a low spot where oil can collect and block air flow. I actually route mine up first so excess oil will drain back to the valve cover, then down with no low spots for an air lock to occur. Works great, breathes well, and never drips.
