Anyone got any pictures of how you set up your oil catch cans for motor evac purposes??

I currently just have breathers with tubes running to atmosphere.. Valve covers don't have baffles and I am getting oil out the tubes when coming back to my pit..

Thinking of just setting up a simple catch can system to "catch" the residual oil being pushed through.. Apprently the engine is building alot of crankcase pressure..

Any pictures or discussion is appreciated!

Thanks!!

why not run a baffled breather with header evac deal....or a vacuum pump, the header deal is cheaper and they are both going to help get rid of some pressure in there, as apposed to what you have going on now.....if there is that much pressure, are you blowing oil past gaskets also?

It is a fresh motor and it does have a slight oilpan or rear seal gasket leak that I have to pinpoint.. Any ideas on why it may have so much pressure?
