Have a old Ford engine hydrovane 139 cwd

by Tom zajac

Hi I have have a old Ford engined hydrovane 139 cwd running like a clock, but recently has started sending huge amounts of oil into the air lines

Is this fixable by changing the oil separator? And are parts still available for these?

Also is that a job I could do myself as no one in my area will service these machines - thanks in advance

They say you can reverse them - but maybe that's already been done.

If you find a source, please let us know for the benefit of others.

Good guess.

You might try cleaning the separator if it hasn't imploded.

Also, could be there's a scavenge tube plugged or flattened out on the bottom.

I don't have any info on parts, sorry. But you could try Hydrovane - they may have something.
