Crank case vent engine elbow...

For those of you who have done the crank case vent mod.....the plastic elbow that comes out of the engine...when removing it I noticed there is a little o ring and looked like there was some residue of like a lock-tite material that the factory put on it, well in putting it back on i reversed the direction it was facing and it snapped back in fine but appears to be looser, have you guys when reinstalling this elbow put anything on it to prevent seepage or should it be fine????

It will be fine, I've had mine in and out so many times I cracked the old fitting and the new one is already loose again. the most that you might get is a little oil right around the hole on the valve cover, but nothing to worry about. You could smear a little bit of silicone on it if you're worried about it.

drivers side valve cover. Sticks up into the intake tube. There are lots of variations of it, but mainly just some hose to run to wherever you want.

The CCV mod on the 6.0 is very similar to the 7.3. You need to cap off the CCV inlet into the intake. And run some heater hose up and over your Degas bottle down the frame rail. Got a few pics for you,,

I couldnt get enough room to run my hose over the degas coolant bottle so i ran it across and down near the brake fluid bottle, and straight down by the framerail will this be ok, or does it need to go up and make sort of a hump then down????

I was looking at pitamarillo's ccv mod and how he routed the filter set-up right next to the brake fluid resivoir if I did this with my heater hose with no catch can would it leave me with a oily messy engine compartment???? I just have a 1" id heater hose with a k&n ccv filter on the end of it....
