Engine breather

PostPost by: jono » Thu Apr 06, 2017 7:26 am

I would like to fit an additional crankcase breather to my TC.

Does anyone know of a purpose made breather that will go where the fuel pump used to be (I'm on electric)?

Cheers

HI Jon
I don't know of any purpose made breather to fit the fuel pump block opening. If you made one it would need to have a very good oil knock out system as there is a lot oil flying around in that location. That is why most additional breathers are fitted to the front of the cam cover as most of the oil drops out in the front cover and little carries over out the breather.

Thanks Rohan,

That had occurred to me. A series Mini engines have a gauze filled canister - perhaps I could modify one of those to fit?

Cheers
