The A-Series engine has a reputation for leaking oil and/or smoking. One of the major causes of the various leaks is uncontrolled crankcase pressure. Remember that after the piston moves up in the block to create compression it also has to go back down in the block- this creates crankcase pressure. And if the piston rings are a little worn the ever present blowby can create considerable crankcase pressure. Mini Mania has developed an easy answer-an additional breather. This adapter is designed to bolt onto the flywheel/clutch housing. It provides a spot to attach various fittings with a 3/8-18 pipe thread output to allow you to create your own catch can or vent system. Machined from billet aluminum and very trick looking!
As well as the adapter, the kit contains:
- 12G1114 Breather Canister Gasket
- Two (2) 5/16-18 Grade 5 Bolts
- Two (2) 5/16 Lock Washers
Use the recommended fittings below depending on the AN hose size you choose.
