    Steve, where exactly does the Christen 809 Breather Adapter mount? I tried that link in your post but I guess it is dead. I've been thinking of some solutions to reduce the oil out the breather on my O290D2. It also sounds like routing the breather line upward and over the top of the engine appears to help. Thanks.

    It mounts to the vacuum pump pad.

    Guess I can't use that then because I have a vacuum pump. I think I'm going to do the breather line rerouting upward and over the top of motor.
