86'ed the CCV mod

CCV mod did great until I pulled the camper for the first time last weekend. The closed system going to a catch can and returning to the intake must have made to much back pressure. I had a nice fountain of oil shooting out of the oil dip stick tube pulling long grades. Made a mess. Didn't do any other damage but I am not taking that chance again. Right now the hose is just hanging behind the front tire. Not sure if I am returning it to stock or just leaving the hose hanging.

Thats exactly why i did not jump on the ccv mod bandwagon. I dont have a problem with the stock ccv system. but you can just let it dump into the atmosphere and be done with it. you might want to rig up some kind of catch can though or you'll have oil in your driveway ect...

Sorry to hear about that. I guess you are lucky that the truck decided to use the oil dipstick and not a gasket or sensor to relieve the pressure

You can jsut let it dump to the atmosphere like trucks have done for years. Many people who do this, never experience any oil dripping from it.

I have had my ccv vented to atmosphere for at least 5,000miles, never a drop of oil in the driveway.

With the right size hose, right size filter/catch-pan, AND the proper routing of the hose (no valley's to form a liquid blockage) there is NO problem with a ccv re-route mod (assuming you drain the filter/catch-pan every once in a while).

Not to hijack but what size would be acceptable,I have been beating myself up for 2 days trying to figure is the correct size and routing.

3/4" should be minimum. Think that's what the vent size is anyway

take the plastic 90 degree elbow fitting, turn it around, then use 3/4" hose and hose adapter, about a 4 ft piece of 3/4 hose and dump to atmosphere just like international. I have never seen and any oil in the liquid state coming out of this hose, more like a oil mist, but not much.
