I have made an air dryer and have plans to bring this air
down through dipstick to the pan and thus get drier air inside of the engine.
I wonder if this will work and if anyone has experience with this.
And how about using the ACF 50 to avoid corrosion in the valve lifts house. Can ACF 50 be used for this purpose?

Air drying spark plugs are pretty common for larger aircraft engines, what you're describing sounds similar to that. A decent sized sachet of silicone moisture absorber on the dipstick tube should keep the air in the sump reasonably dry. The air in the rocker chests also is shared with the air in the case so moisture absorber in there should also keep the rockers dry.
I've no personal experience with ACF50... we'll see if anyone else has!

Thanks for reply. My theory is that if I supply dry air to the area in the oil pan the air will slide upward into the engine to the area where the crankshaft and camshaft are located, hope to avoid rust.
