extending the slobber tube

Recommended Posts

we have an FL-60 Sport Chassis, and the refurbished (whatever that really means) CAT 3126b motor, and it's starting to blow some smoke out the slobber tube, and it's getting the underside a bit oily, as I don't have the money to rebuild or replace, and its still a strong motor I just thought why not extend the tube to the back or introduce the smoke right into the end or close to the end of the exhaust (its a weed burner exhaust down low and out the side in front of the rear wheels) is there anything I should be aware of when extending the slobber tube past the factory length and that's about to the bottom of the block

Back in the day when all trucks blow by tubes venting like yours a lot of people just installed heater hose on the end of the tube down to the road. Very common 

Now they just hook them up to the air intake.

  About ten years ago I was at Lazy Days in Sefner Florida. Looking around higher ends motor homes that were new.

 

 What the heck is that plastic soda bottle doing over the slobber tube.

 

 Ok now that coach will probably will sit on a concrete pad somewhere. Now we cannot have a new coach leaking oil now can we.

 

 Someone's cheep fix.

Fix up something like Vern and Darryl said ^^.

Probly don’t connect to the exhaust there are pressures in there that will upset the cosmic balance of the crankcase ventilation.

How about a catch can thats used on race cars for radiator blow by. Would need a vent and just open pet cock to drain. My old Cat 3406b with almost a million miles will give off a little vapor but no oil mess.
