Hi Mini2

I am new in this forum. I got the Prince engine and i tried to run the pcv outlet in the left side of the valve cover to a oil catch tank, but this resulted in increased oil consumption and smoke from the exhaust. This is due to higher crankcase pressure i guess. The pcv inlet on the manifold is blocked.
I have heard about the valve in the valve cover which opens in manifold vaccum and closes in manifold positive pressure (boost), and this is why the pressure is too high with this modification i have done. Some told me to remove this valve, and this will fix the problem.
Can someone confirm this or give me a other solution?
