Catch Tank ?


Recommended Posts

Does exactly what it says on the tin.... :D Catches Excess Oil in tank rather than channeling it into the air box. Just adds a bit of bling under the boonet to. Sure someone will give a better technical reason than this..... :blush:

an engine needs to allow excess pressure to bleed off, so a breather is installed

the breather links to the air intake and is recirculated back into the engine

what bleeds off is oil vapour which of course contains oil !

this oil over time may build up and give the pipework and intake componments a coating of oil, no great harm is done

by using a catch can the breather is diverted to a can where supposidly the oil within the vapour is trapped before rejoining the intake or vented to air

there not really needed on standard engines, or even mild tuned engines, they come into benefit on high hp engines where crank case pressure starts to force oil residue/heavy vapour out of the breather system,
