strange thing - oil in upper manifold

on the weekend i changed my upper intake manifold to a ported one i bought off a mate, not much of a difference but its certainly better.

something i noticed when i pulled off teh old upper was that the inside of it was coated in engine oil. upon further inspection its all over the inside of the throttlebody as well.

what would cause this, and would this be the reason i get a bit of smoke on startup sometimes?

wouldnt mind fixing it pretty soon

Re: strange thing - oil in upper manifold

id have a guess and say that oil is coming up through your pcv breather hose and back into the intake?

Re: strange thing - oil in upper manifold

Nothing to worry about really.
if you look closely from behind the t/body butterfly, theres a small fitting with a plastic hose connecting to the rocker cover filler neck, to expel any gases/ oil mist.
Just clean it up she'll be fine ..
Cheers

Re: strange thing - oil in upper manifold

Re: strange thing - oil in upper manifold

Could be...
Remove it & check it out, Remove the grommet & pull out the small wire strainer thingy & wash out with contact/carby cleaner a word of advice tho... Go to Ford & buy a new rubber grommet before you do this as they never seem to seal properly afterwards..
Once again mate you'll find it normal

Re: strange thing - oil in upper manifold

When I changed my T/B over to the 70mm unit I noticed I had oil residue in the inlet manifold, and from I have understood it was possible blow back, I am pretty sure on the 200kw motors there is no pcv.

Re: strange thing - oil in upper manifold

i did notice when i pulled teh pcv out the other day it seemed to come out and go back really easy, i might go get another gromet thing like you said.

also i forgot to mention that the hose that goes from the oil filler to hte TB had a split in it, and was why i always had oil around that area. could this have been drawing in air, thus sucking more oil than normal?

its all fixed now anywayz
