Anyone have one laying around?

The cheaper the better.

The one on my car is a steaming pile of poopie, and I want a new, better one that actually does something besides drip shit all over the place, and suck.

I know there is 90000000 of them on ebay, I just don't want to deal with that.

Thanks!

I might have one, I bought it at the swap meet this summer and haven't used it. Just have to find it.

Ah.... I found it. I think I talked the guy down to $20, so I will let it go for the same price. Here is the pic. Metal bracket underneath it and I its made out of plastic.

Can I buy your old one?

LOL.


That's the exact one I have in my car right now!

I think it's made for fuel, not PCV and that's why it's not happy. I need something that can move a bit more air.

Thanks for looking though.

Ham, when I get a new one, I'll just give you my old one.

I changed the thread title too, to not confuse people.

If you want more flow, I made mine like this.

There is a center divider and stuffed some steel wool in the bottom between the two dividers to filter the out the oil.

^thanks, I have been looking at some...

I think I will just wind up with an ebay one, and I'll modify it a bit.

The steel wool sounds like a great idea.

Any thoughts of its flammability?

I would use stainless wool, so bits don't rust/flake off, and get into the engine.


And the #0000 steel wool catches on fire if you put a 9 volt battery on it.
