Just Got the AntiSplat Breather/Separator.............. For both four and six cyl engines units the inlet/outlets are 3/4” My engine IO-540 standard from Vans and the Vans supplied ally extension for breather is 1”. Has anyone fitted the ASA and down sized everything to fit the 3/4” inlet/outlet ? ....... Also which plug have been used to return the oil back to the engine ? ASA show the four cyl engine and the plug just in front of the prop Governor, that’s not applicable to the RV10 IO-540, but there is a plug just below the R Mag pad That’s the plug in the photo with screwdriver pointer. ............ Know there’s different views on returning the oil/potential water mix back to the engine, but I’m over that and I’ve decided to do it. 😱.Appreciate any feedback.(not on putting the oil back)

Yep - did that on my RV-10. I just used some short lengths of appropriate diameter tubing, then inserted the 3/4” tubing into it.

On the oil return, strongly recommend not doing that. Just fashion a collection can to take the blow by oil. You don’t want to put that back in your engine. I used a standard old school Brasso type can, painted to match the engine baffles and fashioned a mount from aluminum scraps and a could of Adel clamps.

Between oil changes I might get ~1/2” in the can.
