Like the oil temp regulated AAR, this one also has nothing to do with crankcase ventilation. > The crankcase breather system (well, at least in the case of my '73) > draws air in to the crankcase through the black breather box on the > top of the fan shroud (where on a Type 1 the generator stand would be) > and air is pulled out via the cylinder hears back into the air > cleaner, to be burned in the intake.

On all type 3s the crankcase vapors EXIT thru the breather box, which is mounted on the top of the case, not the fan housing. Up thru '67 these vapors exited below, via a "draft tube" and a rubber valve.
