most people are just routing the tube somewhere low on the bike and jamming a little filter doodad on the end.
It was the way most engines vented the crankcase on cars and everything else until the PCV valve was invented. Before the PCV valve came along a few manufactures tried running the vent into a mesh screen to capture the oil and return it to the crankcase. The PCV valve was the best thing to happen to engines. It not only kept the oil from dripping on the road it cleaned the engines up on the inside. A small engine with dual carbs doesn't really lend it's self to a PCV. In order for a PCV system to work you have to have enough displacement and constant vacuum to put the crankcase itno a a vacuum.It’s actually the way a lot of early motors vented their crankcase
Joker machine has a mount for an aftermarket coil.but the ignition coil thing has me worried. I didn't anticipate this. Pictures coming soon, but in the mean time, has anybody else ever had to relocate their ignition coils?
If you're running foam filters, there's room to mount a coil on the front of the battery box.
Do you have room for a single coil? Use one set of points and waste spark. Or install electronic ignition.
