    What you guys think of this catch can I made?

    I made this out of 1/32" sheet stainless I had at my shop. It has a brass drain valve at the bottom and I made the input a little lower than normal is I see a lot of guys are having issues with oil wanting to come out through their filters.

    I'm thinking of putting this one for sale on ebay since I have a n/a ski. i just built this for fun. You guys think I could get say $60 or $70 for it?

    Looks good, how big is it-looks large. Are you going to power coat it or leave it raw?

    Where the hose connects needs to be higher, towards the top.

    It's 3"x3"x10" high (not including filter and drain valve). If I had access to a powder coating gun and oven I would, but since it's stainless i'll probably just buff it and pretty it up and be done with it. Not like it will rust beings it's stainless.

    I made it lower purposely. People putting the inlets too high are having problems with oil wanting to come through the filter. Plus it still leaves PLENTY of room for oil! You could still ride 3-4 times without needing to drain it with where the inlet is now.

    That thing looks like frankenstien IT'S ALIVE, IT'S ALIVE...... jk No but you have the right idea with the fitting being lower, with it closer to the top the oil will come out the breather like the Riva one's do and depending on how much blow by you have you can ride quite a few times before having to empty the riva one so I would say you could ride all summer with this one before having to empty it out Nice job!!!!
