FAQ: Why fit an oil catch tank? Ifyour engine breathes back into its induction system (usual on all engines aftermid 1960s) it is recirculating oxygenless oil-laden air back into the fuel mix.As the induction system operates at full efficiency on oxygenated air thenfitting a catch tank will gain horsepower, as well as prevent carbon &sludge build up in the induction system. Simply removing the emissions &breather system will tend to result in a very grimy engine bay, as well as beingdetrimental to the environment, and an MOT fail - forrace use cars showing any indications of oil fumes from their breather systemwill be required to fit a catch tank by the scrutineers.

FAQ: Do I need the extra bracket shown in some pics? The tank is built with a single lug incorporated to allow fastening to bulkhead or another horizontal surface. But many people prefer the extra security of a 2 point fixing (or 3 point if you use the lug as well) - the tank has been designed to take the standard Triumph wiper motor bracket part no BHA4790

TIP: The contents of the tank will give a good indication of the oil and engine condition. Presence of water indicates condensation, very fluid oil / petrol fumes indicates oil is being diluted by petrol (poor combustion or excessively rich mixture), creamy sludge indicates water contamination (head gasket?), excess fumes indicates piston bore sealing issues.
