A couple of my students said they would build me a bracket for my oil catch can.



They got carried away, its 3/16-inch steel.

They said they will drill the mounting holes tomorrow and bake on the black paint.

Yikes, that's thicker steel than on any part of that car. Have them make you (and me) some pinch weld protectors while they're at in.

And it will probably outlast the car.

I told them the catch can might weight a pound or two, they just said "whatever"

I still have one more week of school before summer break, then I'll install the catch can.

That's one of the pictures they were looking at and then they took a couple of measurements under the hood of my car. It will actually mount where the one you posted mounts.

The catch can will be here tomorrow

They didn't paint it today (shop teacher said the shop needed to be cleaned). Anyway, the mounting holes got drilled and the trial fit.



The catch can should be here tomorrow, and it will be black Monday

Well, the catch can just got here in a few minutes ago.

1. the cheap clear hose won't be used.
2. Smells like machining oil, will be thoroughly cleaned prior to install
3. Solid construction, good product
4. Love the dipstick, can check level easily



Should have it all mounted up Monday, when the bracket is painted black.

Looks like an Add W1 design. Do yourself a favor and seal up the dipstick with some teflon tape. Also make sure to check your gaskets on the can, they will eventually stretch out from the heat and will cause a leak.

Thanks for the advice, I will do that. :smile:

No gaskets on this one, just O-rings. Will keep an eye on them.

Just finished washing it, drying it. The O-rings were all lubed with White Lithium Grease before reassembly.
