Ever consider connecting the two breathers together with a T fitting, and feed them both to the manifold?

you could do that, but it won't solve the blow-by oil+air issues, you'd still need to the oil/air separation capability of a catch can.



some people drain the oil out of the bottom and inspect it, but really all you need to do is drain it back to the engine.

I'm gonna second the earlier question; didn't see an answer:

Is the electric horn loud enough to satisfy my need for a train horn? (without the need for compressor and tank).
thanks

Not comparable. An air horn will demolish an electric horn. But they are all a lot of fun

Zetto got stuck in "The-V", COLOUXJ tugged him out with a strap. I went around the bypass



It rained most of the time on the trail....was slippery as hell and traction was hard to get.

How bad is the turn on the left hand side of this picture ? Is it a three pointer , or is the picture deceiving ?

That's Webster Pass. I have not done it yet.

That said, I've looked down on it many times and that particular corner isn't bad. Red Cone has worse in the timber, and Radical Hill has worse on the switchbacks.

It's not bad at all...just a smooth turn. Webster pass is fun, super easy drive up and good camping along the river.
