It's not really a valve, it's just a chamber where the oil mist can separate for the air and the oil drains back into the pan, there shouldn't be that much air travelling through it unless you have serious blow by from worn out rings.
That caused by poor air filters letting very fine dust to pass and that wipes out the rings. OR so it was for me.

do a compression check and see what you get, another more difficult is the blow down test which is build and adapter and blow air into you cylinder, I ran with a bad filter and wiped out my rings and I drool all over my separator, I later made my own and I think it's better and cheaper.

      Does the transmission share the crank case oil with the engine or does it have its own oil seperate from the engine?

      Got it running. The 4wd gets 12v power but does not engage. The posi traction (rear end) does not engage also.  Any one have experience / ideas on fixing these items?
      Thanks Dave

      Bought a Massimo 500 last night. Stopped and filled it up on the way home and I put the wrong gas in it. Is there a drain plug on the bottom of the tank that I can get to or will I have to siphon it out?

      I have a 2022 500 Hisun product, I have had them in the past. I change my oil myself and trying to drain through the hole where I remove the plug is a mess.  How does everyone keep the belly pan clean during the oil and filter service?
