In reply to # 3884096 by Ricey30 Thanks for that Carl I’ll stop looking at that for any vac leaks

Cheers Phil

Just to clarify, That was written from someone that does not use the front vacuum takeoff from the carb. I use the back one, but for brake booster only.

How do make or is there a part that will restrict the flow to .125 from the crank case? I'm intrigued how this is done ?

Thanks Phil
I have used the car builder as suggested by Allan also and did get my fan switch and housing from them that is now all wired and plumbed in , and yes I am also most likely going to be having a few more hoses bought for a better routing of the hose like you say you end up making it up with more than one hose as the front route is close to my dizzy on the stock hose the alloy housing for the bulb is close but I do have the thermostat housing to turn it behind the dizzy
Thanks on the link and the discussion on the catchment tank that i had no idea of, so something else to look into and to source
Great build you have done there on the engine
Cheers

These Rover V8's are "heavy breathers" and require plenty of crankcase ventilation, otherwise they blow out of the front and rear crankshaft seals.

Spen put a plug in the hose with a 1/8" hole in it make it a firm fit and big enough so as not to slip into the carb port. Denis
