I refer you to Savvy Aviation for guidance. As you already or now know air/oil separators can be troublesome. My belief is not wanting to “recycle” moisture or acidic elements that the breather was designed to discharge overboard, back into the crankcase.

Also, RE the install of the separator: it has been brought to my attention from Airwolf, when I had a similar (but less drastic issue) with an air/oil separator: If the “exhausting” or overboard hose is too close to the passing (slipstream) air, it will have a suction effect and draw oil out of the crankcase. On mine I believe they instructed that the “overboard hose “ be not less than 4 inches from the cowl opening. I ended taking mine out, and installing the original oil breather set up. Solved my issue. GOOD LUCK !
