2 plastic plugs? I only have one. Hrmm, I know what hes talking about, I 
have the same configration in my '72 FI. Breather has one large plastic plug 
on the top. Metal tube points down from the breather to the oil 
filler/dipstick tube. The oil filler has a short length that points up to 
the breather. There is a length of hose that connects the breather tube, and 
the dipstick tube at this point. At the top end of the breather there is a 
hose that connects to a thermal switch (located where the mechanical fuel 
pump would be) the other end of this thermal switch is connected to the air 
distribution manifold.

Is that a correct setup for a 72?
