Crankcase Breather/Oil Seperator

Recommended Posts

This past week I was going over routine maintenance on my Trooper and decided to check out the crankcase breather/oil seperator unit and see if it need any attention. The thing is a mess. The fine dust from the desert where I ride hardly even slows down as it goes past the cheap paper filter under the nice chrome cap and enters directly into the top end of the motor. After taking every thing apart and blowing out dust and muck where oil mist from the engine combines with the dust running past the filter I decided to relocate the unit up into the clean air.

Although it looks like a chrome martini shaker mounted to the side of my roof rack I'd rather have people ask me what it is and tell them I drink alot than have all that dust being sucked into the engine. Pull it apart and take a look, I think you'll be surprised.

Happy Trails

I have more of a problem with it blowing oil out rather than letting it in, does yours stay dry?

Mine was dry as a bone except at the point where it enters the head. Even at the nipple where it enters the head there was only on oil mist . All of the hoses had dust in them. The canister was dusty and the oil drain hole was clogged with dirt. In the hose fitting at the head where the dirt mingled with the oil mist there was about a 1/4" of crud. So it apears that mine sucks instead of blows. There was no oil in the canister. For me relocating the canister seems to be the best solution.

      I need help locating a rear cv style driveline for my early 2008 t4 trooper. I have broken 2 ujoints now and almost put a hole in the oil pan! I found one place but they wont return my calls. The mud season started and i got a big paper weight. Any help is greatly appreciated by me and my family.

      This is rocmoc/Michael one of the first on this forum when the Joyner was one of the most active topics.  First an update of others.  The earlier members will also remember Lenny and Jeff.  With myself we organized the first Jamborees in 2009-2012.  Sadly if you have not heard we lost both Lenny and Jeff in 2018.    A great loss to the community.  Myself:  Still around but rolled over to Jeep and Arctic Cat Wildcat.  The Wildcat  design still remains me of my old 2008 Trooper.  Doing well as the Last Man Standing but cleaning out the garage.  Found some New and used Trooper parts I will list in the parts section.  Wanted to give you all a chance before I list on Ebay.  As many of you knew Lenny listed a lot of stuff on Ebay.  Will I partnered a lot of the stuff with him and I still have stuff.  Take care and I will check in for message should you want to ride.  Still make it to Utah every other year and am still in Southern AZ.

      Hey people! I'm looking for a ring and pinion  set for my rear diff. The bolts that hold the pinion shaft cover in place decided to pull threads and my pinion gear broke some teeth. Any help would be appreciated! I priced out a new diff and it's worth a lot for something that is prone to failure. Thanks in advance
