Hadn't noticed the privacy setting. It was just a quick mobile upload.
Setting now changed :-)
ChasR, so for the breather system, I'll probably just run it to a catch tank this time. As you can see, on the old engine it just filtered to air, and the current engine it is piped into the carbs, but I'm thinking I'd rather keep everything separate with the efi set up.
I binned off the original breather system within a month of owning the car, and never looked back!
I was thinking of the potential for more engine leaks TBH . I know that with my Escort and Stag (both of which went to open breather systems the engine seemed to develop more leaks. Of course this may not be a priority . With the Escort I can thankfully sort it and still keep the air clean going in . The Stag was a little trickier!
Doesn't have to be so...... mine doesn't leak enough to drip and the bottom end is still the original Triumph build. It does "sweat" a bit now when used hard though. It simply has a breather pipe to a connection on the atmospheric side of the (single) throttle.
My PI used to leak vigorously from a number of places but was completely cured with a revised breather system that used a proper PCV valve.
Like the linkage btw.

To be fair, mine hardly has no real leaks. A couple of weeps but nothing to worry about.
There's no where to pipe in a breather on the throttle bodies and manifold, so I'll just put it into a catch tank. I had some issues with the original breather system when I first bought the car which is why I binned it off and just used the filter you can see on the mock up
