Look at the bright side Mike, at least you're not having to paint anything!Today I learned, that oil pressure, and oil control have nothing to do with each other.
It doesn't matter if I have a bagillion pounds of oil pressure, unless its somehow getting into the intake stream as a result of it.
But it aint.
Its blowing by the rings.
As far as adjusting the pressure down, it can be done, and the old school " 10 psi per thousand" rpm rule can still be used.
I also learned that adjusting high pressure has no impact on idle pressure...whatever this thing is gonna have for pressure at hit idle is gonna be it.
So then, I gotta rig up another crazy assed oil capture/return system where vented oil will go to, and create a baffle trap system to keep it from blowing out of that.
Now that I have that fitting in the pan, I have a way to get it back in the pan based on drain back...if there was only a place on the engine where I could vent the damn thing where there isnt a calamity of oil splashing around like there is in the valve cover.
I'm Dave, this is Mike's (Old Crotchety we like to call him) thread. There's two of us.OK...so, currently I'm not a long standing member of this particular community, nor do I have much of a first name basis with anyone on here
Thanks John...I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to scan over the thread. I'm glad you liked it.OK...so, currently I'm not a long standing member of this particular community, nor do I have much of a first name basis with anyone on here, but I've been doing my best to contribute to the forums when I have time and hopefully, I've helped some people out, but, with that being said, I haven't posted anything in over a week. Do you have any idea how long it takes to just scan almost 500 pages of posts? I came across this thread and immediately was enthralled by this incredible build and the unbelievable quality and innovation of your ideas and execution. All I could do was basically look on with my mouth hanging open and literally go to the next page to see more progress, more fantastic ideas, more terrific workmanship, and more excellent commentary and videos.
The ONLY thing I can say, and do it without any fear of contradiction, is BRAVO for your unending pursuit of something so incredibly cool and truly innovative.
And I appreciate the offer joe...I need to keep it simple. Tomorrow is Sunday and I want to take a " Sunday drive".Retrace you steps and read the post I made in this thread about "cyclonic separator" #8,402.
The more blow by you have, the better it works; it's the pressure that makes the cyclonic action work. The more pressure difference between the cyclonic separator input and the output, the greater the cyclonic action works. That spinning motion induced into the air stream is what makes the oil and moisture separate out from the airstream.
