I bought several belts and fitted one - which one i can't remember (this was a few years ago!)

As far as i am aware, no-one else has done this (unless they copied me)- so not a lot of point looking on other forums

FOCA! Lol ive joined this club juat to speek to you. With the crankcase breather mod. With it not being connecting to the inlet creating a vacuum, essentially sucking out the crap from the crankcase how does it work?

Ive got loads of ideas for you too if youve still got the mondeo. Ive got a '56 mondeo 2.2 tdci st 79k on the clock.

Hi thanks for that!

The breather still expells hot gasses / some oily spray even without the inlet sucking it in - the main difference is the engine does not re ingest it

As the engine geats up there is some expansion of gasses (mainly air) in the crankcase, as well as some piston blow- by (depending on the age/ amount of wear on the engine + the amount of boost) as the pistons move up and down there is some to-and-throw-ing in the breather, and it can make a "chuffing" noise as this happens

The main purpose of the breather is to de-pressurize or stop the pressure from building up in the crankase, so it does not matter if the inlet does not suck the gunge out

Ive still got the car, its MOTd and taxed and i use it a fair bit, its "restricted" a bit to get a bit less bottom end power but more mid/ top end and its even lighter than it was, ive got a load of parts ive not fitted yet and i have a few other ideas

life is a distraction/ gets in the way, though ive so little time and i cant really justify spending money on it (apart from essentials like tyres/ MOT stuff etc)- might wait untill spring now

Total loss breather system? Have you block the inlet side of the pcv? Or replaced the hose with an already pcv delete no small pipe side part type thing?
