    Strange oil pipe?

    Hi everyone I have a Gtx Ltd and have just found a strange mod. It seems that someone has tapped a hole innthe cylinder head and connected an oil pipe which feeds back into the oil filler tube? Does anyone know why this mod may have been done? Thanks

    Sounds like some kinda strange oil recirculation. Maybe the breather hose that feeds back into the air intake, that we hook a catch can to.

    As others have said, pics would help.

    I am thinking that motor has a lot of blow by and who ever had this ski before you rigged this up to try and band-aid the problem.

    Thanks guys. What does it mean if I have a lot of blow by? She runs great with no problems and loads of speed. Is the motor toast?
