Fair enough. No idea regarding Clalibre catch cans, I imagined they would have something in them to filter the vapors (don't cheapy ones run on steel wool or something?) and that could block up. Longshot anyway, but the symptoms sounded similar.

Nah, most of the cheapies are just an empty can. People then fill them with steel wool or similar to try and help cool the vapour down and catch the oil. The other issue with them, especially on a diesel motor is usually the size of the fittings being a lot smaller than the pcv fittings on the motor. Not too much of an issue with an empty can, but can cause seals to blow out from excess crankcase pressure if you cram a lot of material in there to catch the oil.
