    Hi guys/gals not been on in a while, moved into our own place, not had Internet ect ect

    i may be selling up due to having to do a lot more miles on top of all the new bills and stuff

    so I have decided to sort it's problems out and going to start with the pcv leaks, going to simplify it and use catch can, but where can I get one from? I have found loads on the bay but none have 19mm inlet and outlets

    Many thanks for all your support over the last year and a half ish
    this is by far the best forum around and everyone is great

    much love Ronnie

    It all depends on your engine spec and the milage you do but all you have to do is empty it every week

    Mate, just buy an cheap black ebay one and just put some synthetic wire wool inside it which you can buy from B&Q/Homebase for about £3 - and it wont rust.
    You'll be able to buy the catch can, t-piece, clamps, and hoses for the cost of just that catch can linked above.

    Your selling the car anyway, so dont go mental.
