Subject: Oil Catch Tank

I'm looking for an oil catch tank solution for the crankcase ventilation system on my 1989 900 T8. I'm getting oil dripping down onto the fuel metering plate and into the airbox. I'd like to (a) stop it and (b) get a handle on how much oil ... I don't seem to need to top up at all really; maybe a "gloop" now and again. My garage suggested a mega-cheap option of using a drink "flask" like for a mountain bike, venting it and running a pipe from the crankcase into the bottle. Block up the vac pipe and the return pipe that goes down to the pre-turbo plastic pipe and "job jobbed". Not to be-little the excellent advice and work my garage do, I'm looking for something a little more professional looking to run in-line with the existing system. I've found this at Quiller Triumph, which seems to be about as much as I'd want to spend if I had to buy new. I've also discovered that a very similar system exists on the Volvo 240 (B23F engine, to be precise) ... Now if I could find one in a scrap yard ... It occurred to me that maybe SAAB do exactly what I want, perhaps on the 9-5? Can anyone point me to any pictures of the full SAAB PCV system for the 9-3/9-5? Anyone got any other ideas or suggestions? TIA, Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
