i have removed the ccv hose from my intake and ran it down under the truck towards the back...my question is is it supposed to blow smoke out of the hose when idleing? the engine only has a few thou on it and im hoping it good. i never say a ccv hose smoke so much being a gas engine guy till this truck.
one more question.
amsoil makes a oil bypass remote filter set up for the 7.3 . anyone have anything good or bad to say about it? im thinking about using it with their diesel oil. any comments?

Yes sir that is what happens with no cylinder pressure. I didn't like the smell if I had to sit any where for a while. I used 3/4 coduit. I welded a compression fitting in the exhaust at a 45 degree angle toward to front of the truck and at the back of the trans. This tube bends easy. I ran mine at an angle accross the rear trans mount and fastened it there with an adle clamp. Then procceded across into the left frame rail and forward to where the the frame starts to bend up. Thats where mine is joined with plastic tube from the valve cover. Make shure the hose from the valve cover goes up and over the master cylinder. You can tie the tube to the cowl over to the edge before turning down. This keeps the oil from being sucked down. They say on a small block Chev that this system is worth 15hp. You get a negitive crank case pressure.

so i can put in a cc evacuation system like the ones used in drag race headers to relieve cc pressure.

Yes, this is the same deal. Pressure is resistancein the crank case. I was looking into the filters and the catch tanks you can find on e-bay but once i raised the line up under the cowel the amount of oil was next to nothing so i decided to keep my money. I could swear I felt a difference. I should get my butt dyno calibrated.
