Phfneee... that's the sound of you ridiculing his simplistic approach to crankcase ventilation.

You do get some odors.

I have breathers on both valve covers. I do think it is necessary to have a PCV valve unless you intend to recirculate the crankcase gases back into the system (which can cause some minor mixture issues). My set-up simply allows a atmospheric venting which is not directly injected suck back into the manifold and combustion chambers. This is the way vehicle used to run before the emissions boom in the 70's I believe.

Sure you can run the system like your doing, it will do no harm to your engine, performance etc. except might saturate the filter element and bleed oily residue over that nice engine.

PCV valve will not cause air/fuel mixture issues especially if you tuned the carburetor the correct way with a vacuum gauge and the system is operational.

On the other hand what it there to capture and burn the byproducts, unburned fuel etc., to me I would want to burn off this stuff as not to accumulate the gasses under the doghouse and have a potential boom and fire, especially if your have a rich mixture out of the carburetor and it is causing the oil to fuel dilute.

My is to run a pcv it will not uglify your engine and cut down on fumes, it might even be a coast guard requirement, (I will research that)

I agree, an oil saturated vent cap is just another source of fuel for any potential miss hap. Venting into the dog-house rather then back into the motor doesn't sound like a good idea.
