The top of the bottle is an air filter/breather and the line in is 1".

Happycarz that is a great idea. I have a couple of those breather/oil separators in aluminum laying around. I may even have a Jaz Products one like yours laying around. For those who don't know about them they are breathers and oil separators that we use on racing engines. You have to remember to open that drain in the bottom every once in a while and let the collected oil out. These breathers pass a lot of air and should work great on our diesel motors.

The fitting on the bottle that the hose has been fastened too, has that been changed to one with an I/D of 1" or so?

Don't misunderstand me. I like the idea of the air/oil seperator, and have done enough work on piston powered planes to understand how they work, so I did follow the supplied link. I saw the fitting the web site displayed on the input side, and quickly discounted that as being too small for a crankcase breather. The aircraft background teaches the potential for ice buildup in areas like this. Maybe it was for that reason it didn't occur to me (at the time) that the tank could be modified, or maybe special ordered with a different type/larger fitting? Judged the potential of the tank too quickly I guess... My apologies.

the JAZ puke bottle can be redrilled to accept a larger diameter inlet fitting, if desired. there are many other type bottles made of aluminum available. The alum versions have a variety of inlet sizes available

Drag racers always have to think "outside the box" on many things we use in our sport. Resizing the inlet fitting is NO issue what so ever
