Just picked up our car after many updates including a modification of the crankcase breather. Apparently on the later model 3000 there is crankcase ventilation which on my car had been routed through the valve cover, the valve cover having then been fitted with a "breather". Unfortunately the breather was venting engine oil in considerable quantities that was then cascading over the generator among other things. In discussing this with the shop, the decision was made to put a "blank off plate" over the current breather location and re-route the breather tube down towards the ground.
Problem is, when we were almost home, I discovered that the "chase car" following me home had a windshield that was covered with oil! When I arrived home, after the car was shut off it delivered maybe a 1/2 pint or more of oil onto the floor of my garage.
Contacted the mechanic who told me that it was "blow by" and that my engine needed to be rebuilt.
Maybe. But the compression on all cylinders seemed good before he began work.
It is almost like there is a vacuum that has been created and oil is being siphoned right out of the engine.
Do I just need to pony up for a complete engine rebuild, or is there another possible scenario? If I can figure out how to upload pictures of the current configuration I will post them.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
BTW, my mechanic was very negative about sending my brake servo to Power Brake Exchange, said it should only go to White Post Restorations. Any thoughts on that?
