    CC Breather Install Screwup Caught

    My ineptness is beginning to show - but could happen to anyone (maybe)!

    I had installed the CC breather kit and had a leak at the exhaust manifold. Got everything apart, cleaned up and new gaskets (look nice). Getting ready to put the exhaust manifold back on and I was kind of thinking in the back of my head about the grommet at the bottom of the breather box being sealed well enough. Decided to feel under the box to check and NO GROMMET! I had pushed it into the box when I did the original install. Dang, that would have been a mess after a little run time! Pulled the box off and put a little 1211 under the outside lip of the gommet to hold in place. Tomorrow will re-apply 1211 around the bottom of the breather tube and reinstall. Glad I caught this!

    a very easy way to stop this from happening is superglue the grommet in to the box just a couplke of dobs will do


    superglue and rubber too metal good friends

    I use it on all my engines to prevent vacum hoses in bastard places form falling off
