    Evening All,

    I have an AMK-engined LCR which has had the original crankcase breather hardware replaced with some lengths of silicone hose.

    One of the ports under the manifold has been blanked off, and the Y-pipe near the cam cover replaced with a simple T-piece.

    Nothing fits particularly well, and I'd like to get it back somewhere closer to the OE setup. I'm getting a little oil in the charge pipe and the coolers, and I'm worried that this is caused by the slightly heavy-handed removal of the OE breather setup.

    Does anyone have any pictures of a standard LCR setup? I've tried the search but I get mostly LC information.

    Does the LCR have the suction jet pump as standard?

    Unfortunately there isn't a cheap OEM style replacement breather kit for the BAM engine. £13 gets you the full set for the LC. You could buy that anyway though, I think there's only one hose that's different.

    Thanks Matty - I have seen those diagrams - the "Cylinder head ventilation" diagram is clear and I know which pieces I need, but what I am unsure of is the amount of the other diagram that's standard on a UK LCR - suction jet pump and associated pipework. Does anyone have a good clear picture of their engine setup?

    Thanks Cupra Ross, that's good to know. I take it you mean the large diameter breather hoses?

    Great, thanks.
    That sorts the large diameter stuff.

    What does everyone have for any smaller diameter hoses?
