Does anyone have any pictures of a catch can they have made so i can see? Just so i can get a idea how to mount it and design it.

Buy yourself a radiator catch can from Summit racing for 20 bucks on Ebay the are easy to adapt to a oil catch can there is plenty of room to mount one under the engine on the cradle at the rear of your bus

good luck

Detroit makes a catch can for the tubes,  I have one that I took off the 8v92 in my coach that could be bought cheap.  I think Detroit gets about $200.00 for the cans.

The best single thing you can do is to go for a ride.  Drive the piss out of it for five hundred miles or so, then start checking the drip tubes. If they are still dripping, then you can start to worry about all the bad things it could be.

I've put around 70K miles on my 6V92TA since I rebuilt it.  It came with a well made catch can so I kept it.  When I change the oil every 5,000 miles I get around one-two tablespoons of oil out the catch can including water moisture from the air box.  This is considered normal.
