    Blow-by from the PCV, catch can good idea ?

    Is it a good idea for salt water only skis to keep the PCV valve piping 'AS IS'?

    What I'm trying to find out is:

    By installing a catch can, will that increase corrosion say around the SC wheel or will it not affect it?

    The way I see it is as a 'free fogging kit', not a strong one but one that does help the salt riders... Is that a good way of putting it?

    Is removal of the oil/fuel in blow-by gases going to reduce longjevity?

    I'm asking on behalf of a friends ski which only sees salt water use and has some minor mods

    the catch can will keep your supercharger from getting all sludged up, and on my catch can I have also found water particles after many hours of riding, I empty my catch can after maybe 4 days of riding.

    Yes the addition of a catch can will catch the unburnt gas fumes and it'l let some escape through the catchcan breather or get trapped instead of mixing with the oil. I get 3 things on my catch can little bit of oil little bit of gas and little bit of water sometimes. Maybe due to the moisture due to the high humidity here in the south.

    Try FLUID FILM its the shiznet, if you have a John Deere dealership there in AU they carry it.

    make sure that when you install the catch can is level. not higher than the engine, or else the unwanted fluids will never make it to the catch can, they will just slide back down. I have mine just a few mm lower to make sure I catch them!

    So my catch can is mounted on the back by the coolant tank, you think that is too high?
