    MSX 150 conversion to a oil catch can

    Trying to figure out on how to convert my MSX 150 to a oil catch can. Thought I saw a thread explaining the process with pictures. Can't seem to find it.

    Welcome to Greenhulk!

    Basically what you want to do is disconnect the recirculation hose from the airbox, then route the hose to a catch can design of your choosing. It can be as simple as this. Powerade bottles are better than gatorade bottles, well because there's POWER in them

    I too have a sweet catch can... with custom sock breather filter... stuffed with some stainless-steel wool... works a trick.

    Cheers!

    I would imagine you should plug the air intake to prevent ingestion of water after you remove the hose

    Well, no. The engine needs air to run

    (The location of the air intake is somewhat unfortunate though, being low down in the hull)

    I think he is referencing plugging the spot where the hose was removed from In the intake tract. I was planning on plugging that spot when I install a catch can on my msx.
