MG Midget and Sprite Technical - 948 Engine Breather
|My 948 engine - breather wise, the timing cover breather is to atmosphere as standard. The rocker cover breather origonally went to the air filter but I have now fitted K&N air filters which have no provision for a breather connection. |
At present I have it to atmosphere but was thinking of connecting it to the K&N backplate, this would mean the breather is on the carb side of filter rather than air side as standard.
I cant see any problems with this, or should I just leave it going to atmosphere?
|Les a 948 engine has the crankcase breather from the front tappet chest cover, via a downpipe, to atmosphere. You must have a later timing case cover. On my 948 I run the rocker box cover breather into the rear of a KN filter on the non standard HS2 SUs|
My mistake, I meant the tappet chest cover and not timing cover - doh!
I am planning to run the rocker box breather into the K&N backplate.
Why not put this filter at the end of the rocker breather?
