Re: Fuel Breather Pipe issue

Excellent! Keep us posted. Id suggest changing your fuel hose yearly. Ethanol in modern fuel perishes the rubber.

Re: 1971 Type 3.

You are correct regarding those two small heating hoses. Look after the card tube as its hard to get hold of so if you ever wanted it in the future then youve already got some.
