I think all the fittings for that one are Fiesta ST specific.

I will just link the existing hoses to new ones. ( liked the quick release). Attaching can wont be a problem.

Fair enough. It's a really nice part. Show us what it looks like when you've installed it.

There are two tapped holes at the upper front of the engine and the bracket may go on them. Will have to wait and see when it comes. The connecting hoses will just be joined to the hoses fit by CC to the plastic Catch can.

I spoke with Tony (workshop manager) at Williams Automobiles today and he reckoned no need to vent it at all just stick a bung in the top or use something like that sexy Fiesta ST one. Interestingly he says that the duratecs tend to push much more oil into the catchcans than the Sigmas, presumably they have more crank windage or something. Apparently the sigma catch cans can sometimes be half full at service whereas, I have no more than a few ml in the bottom of mine.

I'd love to see your final install Beagler!

Cheers all

With a dry sump Duratec and the oil at the right level in the tank (5mm below centre baffle when hot), I don't get more than a couple of millimetres in the catch tank after hard track use, even with slicks on and keeping it between 5,000 and 7,800 RPM all the time.

#27 certainly the case for me too. In 7 years I've never had to really empty the catch bottle, though I have cleaned it of a trace of oil/condensation a couple of times.

Running the DS 'sealed' reduces the discharge too as the volume of air is significantly less.

Graham,

New Catch Can should be here on the 17th will post pics subsequent.

Just thought wont be fitting it to front engine spare tapped holes due to vibration. Will attach to Chassis.

I've done a thing! I have fitted a breather to the top of the catch can instead of the overflow pipe as I need to get the car back on the road for the Taffia run this weekend. It was an easy mod using a spare rubber gater (from the ball joint on the end of the front ARB) and a cheap crankcase breather filter I picked up at Halfords for £6.99. Hopefully that'll sort it but I think I'll still upgrade to a proper Aluminium catch can once I've seen Beaglers pics! Thanks everyone.
