From what I've see, believe it or not, that is normal.

You have to be carefull running it to the other line, if you add any backpressure, the seal pops on the snout.

BTW, I still have the Eaton, but I have a lot of frineds with the KB.

VENT MOD

It is not mandintory, but it vents the oil away from the blower.

Its only needed if you are above about 13psi. and it blowes oil all the time. Mine does not do it all the time, so I have not installed mine yet.

KB sent it to me FREE.

But does it work? And how the hell did you get a hold of them? They never answer e-mail and phone is often busy with long hold times.

fix really didn't work good for me

the fix consists of a one way orifice in a vacume line....just pumps the oil into the fender area instead of onto the engine...lol The real fix is posted on my forum..hermann:D
