Default Oil Breather Vent BOMB

I know there are alot of guys out there with this problem, so hear is a simple, $10.00 fix. The 12 & 24v engines have an oil collector that sits on the front of the engine. The collector (Pill box) fills with oil and when the engine is on an incline or decline the oil runs out and is sucked through fan and builds up on the radiator causing overheating issues.

Hear is what you'll need:

-6ft of 1/2 PCV pipe
-2, 90deg female couplers
-1, 90deg female/male (non-threaded) coupler
-1, 90deg female/male threaded coupler
-1, straight coupler female, threaded on one end, non-threaded the other end
-1ft of clear vinyl hose
-2 hose clamps
-1 can of black paint (I used flat)

Thanks to MPM1973. His initial idea I made a few changes.
