    V8 rover breather pipes

    My rover powered cortina has one of those chrome dome shaped breathers on each rocker cover. There,s a fair bit of mist coming out of them at tick over, probably a lot more at speed.
    Should one of the breathers be connected to the carb and the other haves filter on it?
    It has offy intake and a 390 holley
    Thanks
    Ian

    What flexible pipe do you use ?
    Just worried on a long run the pipe will start burning !

    fit a pcv valve in one rocker cover grommet and pipe this to manifold vacuum such as the big pipe fitting at the side/rear of the carb. it'll help no end.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    they're pretty universal to most all european and yank engines so local parts supplier or one of the yank parts suppliers will do one for you.

    I have 2 shiny caps on there now. I've seen a chrome one with a hose connection but pretty sure that doesn't have the pcv valve built in
