"The Technical Description
as described by Elmer W. Bush
The heart of the system is the Silica Gel Catalyst, (adsorbant separator),"

Did he mean "adsorbent"?

Having noticed a huge amount of oil in the upper intake...Doing the "cleaning"...really helped!!!

Just installed a JLT pre-filter and an oil /air separator to prevent this situation from happening again...

That's a good question. Folks may not have been looking for it, when they installed them. If the steel wool approach works less efficiently than the Condensators Silica Gel media (which I suspect), any improvement may have been subtle enough not to be noticed.

Another good question is did anyone notice any IMMEDIATE improvement in throttle response and glass smooth idle quality, after installing the JLT or steel wool separators. The result from the Condensator in this area was far from subtle, but I found it rather dramatic.
