Rob,

Previously spoken about air breathers. Iíve original rocker covers. To make breathers, do you think brazing in fittings or use cast casings  :-\

I added one to the oil filler cap, stupid that after market filler necks come with less than 1/2 the original vw vent capacity. brazing is fine thats how a lot of old cars were done on the rocker boxes.

Morning Paul, Heritage sell the SCAT one's for about £10.00 These just need the rocker covers drilling and the fittings putting in and tighten the nut up on the inside. You can fit fancey breather towers/ collection pots or just run the pipes from these slightly up and then back down to the bottom of the gearbox level, so they just vent to air. My Hi-reving type 4 engine, has the rocker vents but I have not fitted any pipes to them. It also has a vent pipe near the dizzy which I have put a short pipe on, mainly to keep the rain out
