Thank you!

Hi steve

I was going to swing by your November monthly meeting on the 19th, and just wanted to make sure all the info in previous posts, as far as dates and times, still apply?

Thanks can't wait to meet DNW!

In Topic: L-Series Valve Cover Breather Tube

28 January 2016 - 09:42 AM

That would be very ill advised. The name 'breather tube' should give you pause.


The breather tube allows filtered air into the engine to make up what is drawn out by the PCV  system. Under heavy load the PCV system can become overwhelmed and excess blow by has to go somewhere. The air reverses direction and blows back into the air filter housing and is sucked into the carburetor. Without the valve cover breather, the engine crankcase would pressurize and push oil out the seals and gaskets.


My valve cover has the small breather/filter attached to the breather tube. I was thinking about removing the tube but leave the small breather/filter attached to the valve cover where the elbow connecting tube threads in. Maybe thread a small straight pipe fitting in that spot and attach the breather/filter to that? Should work the same as with the elbow in place right?
