I have just started a restoration project and noticed a couple of breather pipes missing on the engine. Can anyone tell me please where these should go or terminate?
One is the top front hose from the engine breather outlet (which at the moment just ends at a very short length of rubber hose on the housing cover).
The other missing connection is the lower pipe outlet on the carburettor’s automatic enrichment device (AED) - which may be the cause of my troublesome starting (but once started it seems to run smoothly, but with a high tick over). I’m yet to check or adjust the carburettors, and don’t know if the AED is adjustable other than looking at its filter. I thought this outlet on the AED was the fuel overflow pipe, but the slightest movement of my finger in front of it rapidly effects the engine running, and my finger within 1/2" of the outlet makes it splutter and if left there or moved closer the engine dies.
