    Default Steam from breather caps? Help

    Freshly rebuilt ford 460. Completely new internals new gaskets, new everything. Got some steam coming out of the breather caps ( no pcv) No milky residue on the dip stick or underside of the breather caps. Is this normal? Like I said it's not a lot, just some.

    Probably just condensation. Keep an eye out on the oil

    Likely the engine oil getting hot enough to cook some inherent moisture out of your crankcase , if the oils not milky wouldn't worry
