He to all
I'm trying to install a oil bath air cleaner on my 72 bus type 1 engine, the reason is because after put the engine on the bus and cruising couple times, I see oil splash on my battery and all the right side of the engine compartment the reason was the nipple where I put the oil! so I found a the oil bath cleaner, which I like install but, the problem is with the line that comes from the charcoal canister; where I can connect this hose?
Because the oil bath cleaner what I have only have one nipple, and I guess is for the oil breather, any suggestions thanks.
And what I'm supposed to do with the flap on the oil bath?

do you have a 1971 upright style engine installed in that 1972? If so the photo from the 1971 owner's manual is below. The north American 1972 originally had dual air cleaners and dual carbs I believe.

That oil bath needs the bowden cable that hooks up from the passenger side flap to the lever on the preheat flap on the oil bath.

That style of oil bath was used from 68-70 on buses, bugs and Karmen Ghias.

X-2 Bill

That is correct but, how many still have the flaps let alone the cable Question

Lets do hope that owners are reinstalling all the important LITTLE items
that were shit canned by independent wanna-be VW mechanics. Rolling Eyes

To the O.P., wire the flap weight open if it is still operable.

Thanks for the replys
The main reason because I want to put the oil bath air cleaner, is this nipple on this picture, splash oil all over the engine compartment, any other way to address this problem! It would be helpful.
Thanks

Excessive blowby is caused by worn rings, worn guides, or excessive timing advance - or any combination thereof. You can add the hose to the oil bath and it will direct it into the oilbath.

I know, right? I do think it's getting better. I think this site has helped reinforce the importance of running the thermostats and flaps.

Actually, you left out the word "arrogant" wanna-be mechanics. Laughing It amazes me how many of them thought they were smarter than the highly educated German engineers who put them on the engines. I also think the MAIN reason they were pulled off the cars was due to the mechanics being lazy. Some VW dealer mechanics from the early 70's that are on this site confessed to removing those parts because it made their jobs faster. How many owners would even know that there thermostats and flaps or bowden cables running to the oil bath were now missing after an engine overhaul?

Yeah Bill, those" arrogant " fools spent too much time looking at 'how to hotrod
your VW' @ the drag strip. Laughing

I was fortunate to start my dealership training between 2 old timers from the
fatherland in 1971
This was the best way to teach a youngster and for me it really paid off for
the first 3 years there.

We did everything by the book every day. there were no short cuts by leaving
parts off and when i started at age 21 there we had the wonderful type-4
to look forward to also
I learned so much from those older guys and will always be thankful for
all i learned from them. VW Logo
