  • More oil fill tube

    I have an oil fill tube that does not have a removable cap. It does have a flexible vent pipe going down the side. What is this thing?

    sounds aftermarket to direct blow-by fumes away from the engine itself

    pic?

      It's what I use I'm sure, described as an oil breather.

          I use a aftermarket fumaze. Picked it up pretty cheap at a swap meet. The driver side used to get a fine mist of oil. Now it stays nice and clean and dry. But the one thing I noticed is that the rear main doesn't leak as much anymore. Can someone explain why or is it just a coincidences

                I opted for a '32 B engine larger dia. pipe after some web searching. The caps are hard to find but show up from time to time. Doing the plastic bag test over the fill hole, the larger pipe appears to breathe a little better. I'm not sure the breather cap screen restricts air flow compared to the fumaze. I think the vendors sell a modern (pricey) version of the '32 pipe..One guy I chatted with fabricated the pipe from exhaust pipe transition fittings available from autoparts stores and then found a breathing cap to fit. There were no internal baffles, however.

                  I also have the B oil filler tube. Cap is a little rough. It will work until I find one lf the aluminium caps to fit it. Rod

                      I bought mine on eBay several years ago for $15, probably because the seller didn't know what he had. The most recent one on eBay sold for $154 ! I can attest to the fact that it does the job as advertised, and works much better than the ones with the flexible tubes that the vendors sell these days.

                        Could the '32 larger pipe perform better than the Fumaze,? I removed my Fumaze (and other accessories) due to theft concerns. As mentioned, with a newly rebuilt engine, the '32 exhibits a lot of back pressure relief via the bag test.

                          On his CCPU, Les extended the flex pipe CLEAN to the rear of his truck, using flex conduit tubing.
                          He & his Wife drove thet dude clear to Canada & back, with NO SMELL!!!
                          Vermins' cap has a missing hose, I'll replace it with that same kind of conduit, the Dog will test it for me, he smells EVERYTHING!!!

                            Oil Filler Tube
                            by DaWizard
                            Well, since all the newsletters I get have the "Tech Tip" about the oil filler cap and cleaning the filler tube, and since I don't know the answer, I was wondering if there is a specific way to install the tube.

                            Alignment of the baffles? Orientation of the baffles?

                            I haven't been able to find anything on how the baffles are best aligned.

                            i looked in the engine sub-forum and didn’t see it so thought I’d ask everybody's opinion here. What is the correct orientation of the baffles in the oil tube?

                            Model T's don't have oil pumps.
                            by Tom Hicks
                            The Model T does not have an oil pump. The engine and transmission share an oil pan, they are both bathed in the same oil. That oil is picked up by dippers under the connecting rods and slung around the engine. The magneto is attached to the flywheel and the bottom of it spins through the sump throwing oil everywhere. Ford had a funnel and tube system to catch some of that oil slung by the magneto...

                            Oil cap question
                            by Tom Rode
                            I've posted earlier about oil leak while car is running (leaks only immediately after a drive, no leaking while parked in garage). One of the possible remedies mentioned is oil cap on too tight or tabs bent and allowing pressure to build up in crankcase, to that end I have ordered a new oil cap and will install it. While examining old cap I found the cap to be "packed" with steel wool....

                            Oil Filler / Draft Tube, not for everyone

                            NOTE: You "purists" will hate this, but it is functional:

                            This "fix" is not for everyone, but works well for me on Elvira. For $12.50 on Amazon, you can buy a cast aluminum VW oil filler tube/screw on cap, with provision for a draft tube. Stick this in your lathe, and turn off a bit of material between the threaded area and the draft fitting, so it just drives in...

                            by DaWizard
                            I have been seeing folk getting all over MMO and questioning the reason for using it. Well, I think it is time to clear a bit of air within these airheads and explain why MMO or Seafoam, or these top end lubricants are almost a must.

                            If you will take a look at this picture of the valve chamber, you will see to the right a copper tube protruding from the bottom of the valve valley. Well,...

                            Suck it out or let it drip - - oil change
                            by Bikerider58
                            Sludge in the bottom of the pan is common due to non-detergent oil. If 10 years of non-detergent and 10+ modern detergent oil and engine build; then it seems like the sludge would be cleaned out. I still had a good layer of about 3/8 inch.

                            I did not check when the pan was off, but suspect a good amount of oil is in the pan below the drain hole. With the engine tilt it seems like there...

                            by Adog
                            Just bought a new to me 1929 model a pickup. Engine runs fine with no knocks. After a 20 minute test drive and parked on concrete, oil flowed out of flywheel housing. A area approximately 18 inches In diameter. Oil also leaking from left side of engine pan and base of oil fill pipe.

                            I have all of Les Andrews books. Question, is it possible to remove pan and the rear main cap for inspection...
