How are you guys seeing blow by? By looking for smoke out of the oil fill or what?

If you want to check the hgs make a pressure guage and hook it up to the degas bottle. I bought 10 foot of 3/4 heater hose ,a three way, and a Low pressure gauge. Cost was under 25.00. If you read more then 16 psi the hgs are probably done. That's how I knew mine were gone. I've read around 5-8 psi is good.

Generally out of the oil fill tube. If you have a ccv mod that vents to atmosphere, you can see it that way also, typically you don't want to see excessive vapor and smoke. Smoke is not good.

Do you know of a gauge that will thread into the extra port of a coolant filter that can stay there for easy checks whenever?

May be a good idea for compression checks and oil analysis, if you think you have a problem.

I dont ever see smoke but I do see vapors even out of the oil fill when I take the cap off. I get a bit of oil mist spray onto my degas bottle from the dip stick.

(Always Faithful) is the motto of the Corps. That Marines have lived up to this motto is proved by the fact that there has never been a mutiny among U.S. Marines.

Wait a minute.. I think there is some people getting scared by how much "blow by" you can have... In ANY engine, take the oil cap off while running and you will see a little little bit of smoke/vapor coming out. Its combustion/heat in that engine what do you think your going to see lol Anyways a little smoke is NORMAL- that being said if it looks like a freight train smoking then you have a problem and if it does chances are it will run poorly. I think we all worry to much about certain "problems" we may have? If your not burning up oil, meaning oil level is at right level, coolant stays full- Your engine is fine.
