King TigerHi. Went to my OPC for an oil filter and they mentioned the need for a crankcase breather as well as the engine oil filter. Is this really necessary?. Also, where can i buy at the most sensible price, suitable fully synthetic oil 10W 40 or 10W 30? Thanks
mcgc0Ah, my error - I spoke directly to Millers (and not Opie) re mixing 10w50 CFS. But yes, Opie very approachable and often repsonding to forum posts and topics.
DekkerYou're going to need a low profile 10L oil catcher.
Targa_Si This thread seems to have become about oil.. which is very interesting too, but can I ask about the rationale and benefits of the crankcase breather/catch can. I’m new to air cooled, and this forum, (first post. hello everyone) so excuse the ignorance. Used to have a Japanese track day car and doing this was recommended, but not so important for road use.
