    Default 405 mi16 series 2 oil breather plumbing

    Just wondering if someone has a drawing of the oil breather system or has a s2 405 mi16 that can inform me of how the factory plumbing is? I have a breather hose which is left venting in to air and want to know where it should be plumbed in. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I got rid of it all due to the plastic and pipe work failing. Two hoses to the oil catch can. One from cam cover, one from lower block. Put filler tube on top of cam cover, all else plugged and gone.

    Nice job! That would neaten up the pipe work. Not sure if I would go to the effort/expense, but appreciate the option.

    The XU10J4 cam cover is aluminium, thus can be welded easily.

    Yep - JB Weld. I was thinking of aluminium / brazing but its under no presure, breather on oposite side so just glued it.

    But it's made of magnesium. I suspect it would have been a spectacular fire.
