And another thing - Ford crossflow breather elbow for the inlet manifold

I now have a x-flow crankcase breather thingy - now I'm looking for the 90-degree connector for the Weber DGV inlet manifold.

Anyone have one they don't want, or know what it's called, and who would sell it?

Thanks.





The older I get, the better I was...

Got a picture? I've got the remains of a xflow here, less block, the breather thingy and inlet manifold and carb. Might have any other bits you need.

Burton do them, the straight and 90 degree are quite cheap. You can also get them from anywhere (once I can remember the size). The 135 degree connector is stupid price.

I tried a search on Burton's website, but I failed due to not knowing the correct name...

I found the expensive 135 degree which is out of stock but .... It tells you the fitting, so you can look elsewhere for straight or 90 as I can't find them on the site

David,

I made my breather connections using 15mm copper pipe fittings, when i was running the twin 40's
but discarded all of it, and just vented into a bottle, from the cam cover, and pop off valve
I never reconnected it when i went back to the 28/36 Dcd fire starter carb

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Here's the puppy, found for me by Joneh:

ebay

But there is NO WAY that I'm going to pay that money for it!

As I now know what they're called, I found that Burtons have this union that appears to be the right thing.

I'll check sizes tomorrow.

Sorry. I thought you were after the vacuum not water. Again, I'd but it from a hose supplier of Burton don't have it. I've got a spare in the garage. I can look who supplied it if you need a supplier name.

Its the same thread as a brass plumbing thread, and thats what i used, with a crimp and nut with a piece of 15mm pipe,
then normal heating hose to the top of the water pump,
