    Finally decided on a name for the bus. Going with George - named after my favourite Seinfeld character. Here are some pictures

    Qld sunshine coast. Same model as me (1977) sopru campmobile. Named all my other cars girl names decided on a boy name this time. It's a 2 litre that's been bored/stroked to 2176cc with twin webers- it felt like it needed to be male!

    Great looking bus, definitely looks like a boy. Looks like a bigger exhaust too. :cool: Got any pics on how your awning is mounted?

    jtkombi the awning is mounted on a bracket which attaches to the roof racks. I've posted some more pictures of the brackets and the motor,exhaust and interior. I've got no idea what sort of exhaust it is, assuming it's not stock as the engine sounds less like a stock kombi and sounds more like a Subaru. Maybe someone else will know.

    In the middle of the picture you can see a little filter that attaches to an oil box. Not really doing anything except causing a fine mess as oil leaks out. Been told its supposed to have a hose mounted which attaches to box that mounts to the firewall then two hoses attach to the manifold to burn off the crankcase gases. Does anyone know if this is right or have a similar setup?

    Interior pictures. The seats are very comfy, makes you want to keep on driving. Definitely recommend upgrading your seats, if your not worried about keeping it all original.

    Again not an original sopru interior, but a nice upgrade. The p/o did this.

    That vent Should connect to your air filter box. To burn if vapors from the crankcase.

    But you don’t have an air filter box so a bit tricky to connect up to your aftermarket filters.

    It should by rights be recirculated back into the engine for emissions reasons.
    My mark 1 cortina just had a pipe running down the side of the engine.

    Look up breather box on CB Performance or air cooled.net or Gene Berg

    Normally there is a baffle/mesh in a box that drops the oil out of suspension and that should drain back to your rockers /sump. Needs to be below the height of the outlet as it is a drain

    You can plumb the air to the top plate of your carbs.

    I can post som pics of my set up I had on a type 1 but will be in a few weeks as I am out of the country.

    If you have too much oil coming out it can mean excessive blow by into the crank case

    On my phone but see if this link works to give an idea of how setup should be
    Inside the breather box is stainless steel mesh. The oil gets stuck on that and "pools" It drops out of the air and drains back into your sump. The air goes back into the top of your carbs

    It's for type 1 - same same but different
