On a revtech 110 why is oil blowing out the breather tubes and head?


Hi, Chasity oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For whatever reason, the breather system is not separating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from the head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under the frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump.
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate.

I have a 2012 harley and im getting oil blowing into my air breather how do i find wear its leaking


The oil breather/separation system ends up in the induction pipe throat and the oil mist that does not get eliminated in the breather process is then sucked into the induction system and burnt n the engine. If your oil level is too high or if the breather system is defective this will cause excessive oil to end up in the air cleaner area. If the tubes etc that direct the oil into the induction system throat are missing or defective this would also add to or cause an excessive oil in the breather area problem.

91Harley FLH, OIL pouring out of breather tube . Whats problem?


Has the bike been sitting for a while? If so, I may have "sumped". This means that oil from the oil tank flowed past the check ball in the oil pump and flowed into the bottom of the crankcase. If the oil level is low, there is a good chance this is what happened. Only way to get the oil out of the crankcase is to run the bike until all the oil is pumped out thru the breather. Place a pan under the breather hose to catch the oil. Eieset way to solve this problem in the future is to place a clamp on the feel line that goes from the oil tank to the pump. Don't run the bike with the clamp in place! Hope this helps.

Breather tube throwing oil into carb


Oil coming via the engine breather can mean a worn engine, it could be as simple as an over filled sump, or the breather valve itself is not working, the breather valve allows the crankcase pressure out of the engine.

What makes a 2005 Yamaha YZ 450 F Blow Oil Out The Crank Case Hose Into The Breather And White Smoke Out The Pipe Thanks


Hi, Shawn_luke_I oil level readings are taken when the engine has reached normal operating temperature and the usual suspects are:
1. Overfilled oil tank dipstick reading should at or below full.
2. If the sight glass is full you are running to much oil.
3. Excessive blowby caused by worn out piston rings.
4. Piston rings never properly seated.
5. Faulty breather valve or system.
6. Pinched or clogged breather line/hose.
7. Clogged or failed oil filter.
8. Contaminated oil dirt-rust-water etc.
9. Excessive oil foaming.
10. Wrong oil type not designed for your bike.

Oil system manual for a 1987 softail (evolution). oil leaking from breather of engine system.


On your '87 Softail, the engine breather vent is behind and below the oil pump. The air from the breather is routed into the engine air filter by a metal pipe and rubber tubing that runs from the breather vent to the air filter. It is common to get a bit of oil in the air filter because of this system. The system was designed to meet EPA regulations of the time. Since then, the breather system has been modified to allow the engine to breathe at the top of the heads instead of down low on the engine. This resolves some of the problem with oil getting into the air filter but it still does not eliminate it. The only way to eliminate the oil from getting into the air filter is to reroute the air from the crankcase breather vent to somewhere else. Most people just let it exhaust underneath the bike by putting a small breather filter on the end of a short piece of rubber hose connected to the breather vent.

Good Luck
Steve

Oil is getting on air breather 2004 ram hemi


Hi,
oil getting on a breather can indicate excessive crankcase pressure. Check all the `crankcase breathers and the valve cover breathers.

if the crankcase has been overfilled with engine oil. The crankshaft has to "beat" it's way through the oil and thus acts as a pump and sends oil all over the internal surfaces of the crankcase.

If the engine cylinders have developed 'blow-by" they will also contribute to an increase in crankcase pressure which will be evident by oil in the breathers. The fumes / pressure in the crankcase are designed to be removed by the engine breather system, and drawn through the engine etc.

I hope this info helps.

I recently added a kuryakyn hypercharger on my sportster


The worm clamp proly did choke off the breather. Usually when oil comes out of your breathers it means there is to much oil in your oil tank.
