CCKB breather

Recommended Posts

After replacing the manifolds on my Powermax CCKB. I started it up without the air cleaner. The breather blew so much oily smoke that it was dripping of the carb linkage in seconds. Much more smoke than the start up smoke through the muffler. How bad is this? Rebuild time? Rebuild or replace. I can replace it myself, but not rebuild. Haven't got a compression gauge. The breather is stuffed with brass wool. Should I leave it or fix it?

Pull the breather apart and clean it to start with. It's likely on the CCK enegines that you have a good amount of blow by but you shouldn't be pushing much oil other than vapor.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
