I have been thinking about putting a oil catcher on my Eagle 10. I thought I might use a 4 inch PVC pipe with a screw out drain in the end and drill two holes in it for the rubber hoses.  What  are some other ideas that you have used? Thanks.

That is the way I made mine. 8" long with caps, 2 holes for the drain hoses. Also you need to have a vent on the top of the container. My airbox would pressurize and blow a hose off. Shocked I used a vent from an old DANA rearend housing. Cool

I used 3" PVC about 15" long. I drilled and tapped two  1/4"  holes in top and installed barbed fittings to attach the rubber hoes. I drilled and tapped a larger hole in the top (I think it was 1/2 or 3/4") and installed a vent off of a hydrasulic tank. One 1/4" hole drilled and tappped in the bottom of one of the end caps for a drain petcock an it was done. I mounted it to the frame under the engine of our MC-8 with two large hose clamps.  YMMV Jack
