Has anyone redone their PCV system to help the oil drain back into the crankcase? I just pulled my intercooler cold pipe off to be able to change the fan belt and found a lot of oil inside. I pulled off a bunch of stuff to find the source and it is coming from the PCV. I've read a bunch of the PCV reroute posts, but it seems they have a habit of putting oil all over the place.

The 6.5s use a CDR valve that basically has an oil filter (to filter out oil) so the oil drains back into the valve cover. Has anyone tried to put some sort of filter on the LBZ to get it not dispensing oil into the intake or out onto the ground?

I'm sure it has baffles under the valve covers to do that, but they apparently don't work very well.

Already read that one. It won't stop oil from going out the end of the tube which is what I'm looking for. I want the oil to stay out of the intake and off the rest of the truck or the floor.

I was thinking of making a pair of filters out of PVC with steel wool to put them right on top of the valve covers so it can drain back into the engine. I guess I'll have to see, that plastic line might not clamp so well and there might not be enough room.

I would like to put an oil separator in, I just haven't figured out how yet. But if I do I'll post it.
