Hi I want to remove the breather set up to either clean or replace, I have the valve part removed from the round can but want to know if the can just pulls out from the block or screws out. (dont want to damage anything trying)

Hi mate, crankcase breather is an interference fit on my pinto. Replaced mine with one from burton and ran a hose to a catch tank.

Thanks for the replies, I thought about a catch tank but can’t convince myself it’s the right thing to do I guess it’s set up as it is for a reason after all

Mine wasn’t connected to anything when I got it, just some nasty broken plastic thing stuck in the hole (another bodge!) 🤣

My breather hose isn't connected to anything, just the same as the gearbox breather hose

I think the original pipe connected to the inlet manifold, if you have carbs there is no where to put it so a catch tank is used.

Yes mine was connected to the inlet manifold but the engine was not running well at all and would rev past half throttle under load and was billowing smoke. The plugs looked oily so blocked off the breather and noticed there was an open vacuum pipe on the carb so blocked that off too. Now no smoke and running good but I think I want to keep it standard rather than a catch tank

I have removed old valve unit and have a 90 deg adaptor in the hole and a pipe to a catch tank . The original valve was to let pressure out from the crank case I don't think you should block it off completely . [cleardot]I used the burton powers one .

As above, the crank case and sump need to breath. Ford fitted a breather for a reason👍

yes I understand the need for the breather just debating whether to stick to the standard set up (cleaned or renewed) or go with a catch tank
