Catch can

Post by pinzinator » Sat May 11, 2019 7:22 pm

Has anyone ever installed a catch can on a gas Pinzgauer? Google 'catch can' if you're not familiar with the term.

I would think the Pinz engine would be a good candidate for one.

I couod see it on a boosted engine. Why do you think there is a benefit in our gas pinz with carbs?

It would catch the blow-by oil and keep it out of the intake, therefore off the valves and piston top (carbon build-up). I'm not sure one could be installed on a Pinz anyway as there's no PCV valve. Every Pinz is an oil burner.

I've installed one, but haven't driven it enough to really notice any difference or have to empty accumulation from the can yet. I was hoping it would reduce the oil in the intake manifold. I need to do some work on the Pinz this weekend and will let you know what I find and take some photos.
