CPD oil filler & engine breather, new, short type, designed in England. Made especially for KIT CARS. ZERO STOCK.
THIS PART IS NOT IN STOCK - WE DON'T KNOW IF WE WILL GET ANY MORE

Total height 16cm, diameter 4.2cm.

This is a complete reworking of the Citroen concept using a metal reed valve, very efficient and will probably last for ever!

An old engine will often be covered with oil on the outside and drips on the ground.

The apparently simple engine breather, when in working condition (the Citroen original will not last forever, say 5 yrs. maximum), creates a partial vacuum inside the crankcase which means that at the point of a potential oil leak the engine tends to suck air in rather than leak!

If you open the lid with engine running oil and fumes will always gush out (this is normal, it happens with a good breather also a bad one). On each down stoke of the piston any air inside the crankcase is compressed, if pressure cannot escape the resulting power loss can be 2bhp. (5mph from top speed, 6mpg consumption increase). Fitting new often improves starting too!
