    My crankcase breather, 1st one left me stranded

    1st one I mounted sidewase/tilted because I was in a hurry.
    The oil clogged the vent and it started blowing out oil(couple cups).
    I ended up getting stranded and could only go 5mph/ 3500rpm.

    I installed the 2nd one and it fixed my problem (didn't know it was the crankcase). I'm leaving the vent off this time.

    I got all the pieces at lowes. It's a 3/4 grey pvc with a bend. The white part is a 1 1/4 inch pipe coupler. Then I cut the top off a spray bottle and glued it into the coupler.

    Is there are reason I would need a breather on the top.
    Does the crankcase put out like explosive fumes or something.
    I kind of like the idea of having an open top so I know it won't clog up.

    I think I'm going to drill holes in the top of the catch cup too just in case it fills up it can overflow instead of clogging the breather.

    Is there any reason you can not extend the hose so that it puts the new vent up by the battery?
    There is a lot of room and empty space up there?
