    How to stop oil splashing into PCV inlet?

    Looking to plumb my PCV into the valley of my inlet manifold to keep the nice shiny rocker covers hole free.

    Question is what can I use to stop oil being splashed up into the PCV inlet?

    Was thinking about using a road draft canister as fitted on the early SBC but can't find one.

    Failing that I was looking at making a box up from steel sheet but not 100% sure what shape to make it to avoid oil pooling in it and getting sucked up into the engine.

    Engine is a SBC with a performer airgap manifold.

    Any ideas what I could use or does anyone have a cannister??

    Ta,

    P.

    Did these cans only work with the blocks with the Road Draft Pipe hole in them? Just a thought.

    There's no replacement for displacement.

    A baffle on the underside of the inlet manifold - simply a piece of ally rivetted directly under where the pcv is situated but still allowing 'breathing' space.
