Subject: Cranckcase breather vs. elbow?
IP: Logged

Message:
What's the difference? My '96 engine has a breather element, but the '98 I replaced it with only has the elbow.
Does it matter if you have an elbow or breather element?

Thanks,
Daveo.

The elbow should have a rubber tube that runs from it up to a nipple on the airhat. I'm guessing the breather is a little filter and doesn't need to be run up to where it would pull in filtered air.

GB2000,
The funny thing is that they BOTH have the tube running up to the airhat.
I guess one is FILTERED air and one is not!(LOL)

We may never know!! :)

Interesting... I never knew that. I don't know jack about gen. 2's (barely anything about what I do own...gen. 3), but I always thought the breather for the gen. 2's was just a small filter right on the valve cover instead of having the tube that ran up to the airhat. I think one is filtered air and one is double-filtered air...lol.

Direction of flow is from valve cover to
air intake ( air hat , or breather assy )
older filters at valve cover
newer uses only orifice size
