Maintenance Free Crankcase Breather?
Anyone see this? Looks like the bulletin came out last October. I don't know how to link the bulletin here, so I just copy and pasted it. The bulletin number is TSB150147. Got it off of Quickserve. Curious what people think. Good idea? Or hogwash?

The International dealer that is doing my work was talking about these the other day. They are already out, I think he just got his first order in. I will check when I go up there tomorrow and see if I can get some more info or a photo.

I hear they are bragging that the new 2017 engine has much better programming in it too. I bet they have copied some of the @m*m^2 programming!.

Instead of solid element they have seven circular filters. Don't know how to post pics but could send one to someones phone or email and they can post.
