RE: [T3] Suicide Notch is on the Road!! ( one small problem)


Did you fill up the gas tank?  If so, you probably had some fuel overflow
out of the filler neck -- no biggie.  Have you checked for fuel leaks along
the fuel lines and throughout the system (gas t&ter, filler neck,
tank breather, fuel line connections tight, etc.)?  Dual carbs aren't the
cause and, in fact, FI can be worse since the fuel is under more pressure.

Yes, you do need a breather box.  A breather box essentially lets the
pressure that builds up in the case to escape -- a long continuos fart, if
you will :)  The stock location is fine, just route the output hose to the
intake of the carb.  A less eco-friendly way would be to just let the hose
route the fart to the bottom of the engine by the oil sump and waif out onto
the asphalt below.

If you look at 'http://www.icbm.org/erkson/personal/engine.jpg' you'll see
the CB Performance breather route to the top of the right carb
'http://www.icbm.org/erkson/personal/valvecvr.jpg'.  Ignore the squished air
filter as I got rid of that 10-year old one (K&N, baby!) and have a new,
straight one installed.  You'll also see in the last image that I have a
breather hose that goes from the valve cover to the breather.  The same
thing goes for the other valve cover.  They dump into the breather (two
hoses in, one out).  The breather also gets pressure directly from the case
just like the stock one would.  I'm not convinced that the lines from the
valve covers are necessary and I may end up removing them.

List:
On my last trip to some of the local used book shops, I came across some
interesting T3 books.  Among my catch was a T3 Bentley manual (the later
version with the B&W wiring diagram).  It's in very good shape.  If anyone
wants it, drop me a line.  Pay only what I paid ($12.50 I think), plus a few
bucks for shipping.  The same shop also has a stack of the older
spiral-bound Muir manuals for around $11 each.  The store is very close to
me, so I'll be happy to pick one up for someone who needs one.  Let me know
directly.
