    Piece missing off cylinder head......

    Fitted a new catch can today along with re-doing the pipework as it was a right mess (my bad from the first attempt haha). While i was at it a noticed a half moon shaped hole in the side of the cylinder head, i could get my little finger in it but it seemed to be sealed behind from some metal object, now it looks like where the AMK/BAM vvt tensioner goes but not sure, anyone with a APY engine give me a heads up?

    I'm fitting a new one on my car next week.

    Errr, no. Sorry mate. You want one doing? Mine doesnt re-circulate back into the TIP now though, ive got it venting to air, even with my old catch can fitted it was still passing oil back into the intake, not good, so blocked the hole up and got it venting under the passenger side near the gearbox now .

    I thought the guide from the catch can group buy was ok. You just need to sort through the ****e in the tread but thats what I used to do mine. It looked seriously confusing just reading it but as soon as all the old hose is out the engine bay it all makes sense.

    Are you sure Dani. Normally if the cam adjster gasket is shagged you will get oil leaking out by the battery side of the head just under the crank breather.

    Nah mate. Mine is leaking so i'm changing the gasket next week. The little blue thing above is the half moon piece that goes the other side of the hole you're talking about.

    I have finally got it so i will do one, it is really straight forward once it all clicks, but like said that thread is a mess and the info needs extracting

    Yeah i think it is but i wonder if the part that blocks it off has come out of mine thus leaving the hole.

    I've just replace mine, the hole is still there but gets blocked off by the gasket that's also why we can use different heads off the bam or amk
