Breather Cap issue ?

Ok , new motor is in, car is dyno, everything is good except oil is slowly dripping from my breather cap onto the header and burning off, is there breather caps the have adapters to straighten up or can I just plug it with a oil fill plug?

I remeber one of my friends having this issue in his maverick and i. belive all he did to fix it was instaling valve covers that had a baffle but im not too sure was long time ago. I think the baffle kept oil from shooting that high

Yea there are no baffles with these valve covers , I bought the ones from moroso where I drilled out my oil fill and used a push on breather cap, .... Now they do have a push on cap (plug) that I can use

I don't know about a cap or plug, but you need breather(s) to vent the crankcase or you will be blowing seals.
The valve covers definitely need the baffles at the breathers or it will always blow oil out.
You may have to get an oil separator and a breather with a spout out the side to contain the oil if you cannot install baffles in the valve covers.


Show me a picture of what you have for each cover and tell me what size holes are in the valve covers and we will come up with a fix for you one way or another.

Great.
I wasn't aware that anything like that was even available. It should definitely help cure the problem.

Me neither. That usually limits valve cover selection because I am always worried about baffles.

Such a simple cure, I wish someone had thought of that years ago.
