Reply To: Spitfire engine breather.

Hi, Nocca
Oil coming from the engine breather is a known problem , I think the fix was “repositioning of the breather” (pointing it straight up) to allow any oil to settle and run back to the engine .
The problem is that big single piston moving as much air in the crankcase as the cylinder and not much space for a breather, fits under the fuel tank between the cylinder head and the frame (orange grommet is the tank mount)
regards martin
