More plumbing

Finished off the breather pipework this afternoon with a 1/4" return oil pipe reducing to 1/8" T'ed into the 3/8" open breather on the timing plug hole. This will let excess oil return to the crankcase sump from the Fossbilt baffled breather tank.

Started the motor on the paddock stand and let it warm up, considerably less smoky and no oil coming out of the breather valve ....... more road testing to come.
Next, some alteration to the sump pick up to make sure the pump gets the excess oil away from tbe crank as efficiently as possible and to minimise drain back down the return line.
