Installing the Kanjo Spec.D Dual Mode Oil Catch/Breather Cans (set of 2) with hose is a relatively straightforward process. However, please note that specific steps may vary slightly depending on your vehicle’s make and model. Always refer to the manufacturer’s installation instructions for the most accurate guidance. Here’s a general guide to help you with the installation:
Tools and Materials Needed:
- Kanjo Spec.D Dual Mode Oil Catch/Breather Cans (set of 2) with hose
- Mounting brackets and hardware (included with the kit)
- Screwdriver or ratchet set
- Hose clamps (if not included)
- Park your vehicle on a level surface and allow the engine to cool down.
- Disconnect the negative terminal of the vehicle’s battery for safety.
- Locate Mounting Points:
- Choose suitable locations to mount the catch/breather cans in the engine bay. Common locations include near the firewall, fender, or on the inner fender well.
- Mount the Catch/Breather Cans:
- Use the provided mounting brackets and hardware to secure the catch/breather cans in the chosen locations. Align the cans in a way that allows easy access for maintenance and emptying.
- Connect the Hoses:
- Attach one end of the provided hoses to the inlets of the catch/breather cans. The inlets are typically marked as “IN” or “FROM CRANKCASE.”
- The other end of the hoses should be connected to the corresponding ports on the engine or valve cover. These are usually located near the crankcase ventilation system.
- Secure the Hoses:
- Ensure the hoses are securely attached to both the catch/breather cans and the engine ports. Use hose clamps if necessary to provide a tight seal and prevent any leaks.
- Verify all connections, including hoses and mounting brackets, to ensure they are secure and free from any obstructions or kinks.
- Reconnect Battery:
- Once you’ve completed the installation, reattach the negative terminal of the vehicle’s battery.
- Test the System:
- Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes to check for any signs of leaks or abnormal engine behavior.
- Regularly inspect the catch/breather cans and hoses for any signs of oil accumulation. Empty the cans and clean the filtration media as needed to maintain their efficiency.
Remember, if you are not comfortable performing the installation yourself, it’s best to seek professional assistance from a qualified mechanic or automotive technician.
