BD Diesel Crank Case Vent Filter - Easy Ford Installs
Part Two: Crankcase Vent Filter Kit For '99½ to '03 7.3L Power Strokes
Following last month's CFM Plus intake manifold install on the 7.3L Power Stroke, we decided to bring you another easy bolt-on option for your '991/2 to '03 Super Duty-BD Diesel's crank case vent filter kit for the 7.3L Power Stroke. This is an aftermarket product that prevents the factory crank case breather system from introducing oil into the air intake.
By adding a filter and oil catch can system to the factory closed crank case vent system, its kit also prevents crank case oil vapor from contaminating the intake tract, which keeps intake boots from blowing off and increases boot life. The system also reduces the amount of oil found in the intercooler. Since it's a breeze to put on, the guys at Diesel Tech in San Jacinto, California, had our system installed in about an hour. Here's how it went.
