thanks mike
Mike. Sounds great. Several on this forum have used upsidedown plastic containers filled with steel wool. The slobber tubes inserted into the containers. No breather per say, just a slot opening. Unscrew the cap to drain the contents. All reported to work.

One alternative I keep thinking about and its based on the above...is still make the cylinder, with 1" ID pipe on each end extended up about 8 inches. Insert the slobber tubes 8 inches into the pipes; the breather is the area around the slobber tube and the vertical pipe wall. Pretty much the same as the plastic bottle method. Just looks better.

Default Slobber Tuve Catch Can Finished

I was going to wait a week before doing the slobber tube catch can but decided I had time today to work on the project. Pixs attached. I'll forward a writeup to John Finn for posting on this site.

Cost to do this project, about $50.00

Randy. The 4" end plug is removable, drain the catch can by removing it. You say drain every few years. I'm planning to check after 10,000 miles. Too often? Maybe 20,000 miles. Others please share your experience.

Jim. The 1" is screwed into the 4". They screwed in tight so no glue.
