and a close up.




it says, if the engine is fitted with an iol-separater type of breather canister welded to the tapped cover, this must be removed to gain clearance for the stady-bar, if the engine is fitted with a secondary breather, on the rocker cover or flywheel houseing then a plain tappet covercanbefitted in place of the canister type.

However, if the tappet cover breather was the only form of brerathing on the engin then you can either:-
fit a rockercover with a breather
or
fit a tappet cover with a 1/2 bore breather pipe as used on most "a" series engines before the introduction of closed circuit breathing.




does that help anyone to help me, in normal words, lol

Like it says, take off the left tappet cover (the one with the cannister) and fit one without a cannister, at the same time making sure to put a breather on your rocker cover =)

i think because im off work ill ive got my stupid head on,,

so let me get this stright, i have to by my self a new tappet cover at the back of the engine first, so when i remove the cover with the breather on i can then fit the one with out, i get that bit, but what breather do you fit to your rocker cover?
any pic's to give me a idea of what im looking for? if im bafforled,

do you mean a new rocker cover cap,? or something like that?

I have a engine steady here that was fited to a late motor with breather and what they did to fit it was bend the bar, this is an adjustable bar.

You need to change the complete cover, early ones had a breather pipe on the top.
If you do not have the breather you will have running problems and oil leaks.

What it does say is if there is anoher breather fitted to the clutch housing then just fit a plane tappet cove.

Check to see if your enine has another canister bolted to the clutch housing next to the standard stabiliser arm.

this explains why my last post dissappered you changed the site on me !

as i was trying to say.
1 possability is to remove the breather, cut of the top pipe from it, drill a hole in your rocker cover, the same size, and weld the pipe to the rocker cover, replacing the breatehr with a lh cover instead, a possability maybee?

Why dont you just take the cover off the left side and swap it with the one on the right?

Will this work?

If not, then get hold of an early rocker cover with a breather pipe on it, or make your own, or cut the breather off that you have now and weld it back on at a slightly different angly so it dont get in the way.

the one i have got was from minishoplondon.....will try and get you a pic of it asap.

Rich if yours is a 1275 they fit fine its only on the 1000's

Bluemini you cannot swap the covers, if you did the breather would be in the centre of the carb.

Cutting off and re-welding the breather to clear sounds a much better idea. Just becarefull that you do not distort the cover.
