    This is a well known problem with this engine.

    Common practice is to recirculate the oil, i.e. it goes into a breather tank and is then allowed to drain back down into the sump.

    ProTec Motorsport in Preston used to sell an off the shelf kit to do this.

    I have this engine in my car (see Projects section), and have a breather tank that recirculates to the sump.

    I’ve a feeling SBD Motorsport even have some drawings of the breather system design on their website.
    There is only one way to contact me - E-MAIL ME AT colinesmith@aol.com.

    Literally thousands of Nova (plus other Vauxhall and motorsport parts) are available from me. But only if you send me an e-mail.........
