Anyone have a source for the breather thingie on the top back of the valve cover? Thanks, Dave V. in NC

Why not run the valve cover breather to the air filter like.... Can't figure out for the life of me why he didn't use the cool factory hose on the factory air cleaner for the valve cover breather... That silly breather filter just looks like a shortcut.

Tom,

It seems as if you know the seller well? I read your comments on BAT, and it seems that you should have contacted him personally, and show him the Error of his ways, Your Highness, instead of being the Resident Expert. This board used to be a Family atmosphere, now it is just bunch of Reality TV wanna-be's. Why dont you put up photos of all your cars, and let's compare then to the 1970 BMW on BAT.

If it is becoming such a reality show why don't you post with your real name instead of hiding behind a mask? At least I don't wear a mask when I stand on the soap box. I'm not the only one to point out faults with the car. It was posted on a public forum for sale and that's what people do there, discuss points they like and do not like about cars, and related stories they may have.

Compared to many of the other posts here and on Bring a Trailer regarding that car mine have been rather kind.

If you really want to be angry at me for speaking my mind than do so without hiding behind the mask a false name.

Here is an example of an '02 I have worked on...

as tom said, stock hose routing better. if you don't like the stock routing, run a hose to a catch bottle.

those breather thingies are available at any chain autoparts store. the ricers love'em.

however, they are useless. if you toddle around town at under 2k rpm, you can probably get away with using one. if you play hard, oil will spew out of the filter and cover your engine, trans and under the car. btdt.

What I posted was simple, but as usual, the so-called 02 Gennie, dances around the real subject. I suggested that you contact the seller since you have done business, or bought cool parts as you say! Again, working for Casey Motorsports must be great, you know, working on all the cars you wished you owned. I said, let's compare the 1970 2002 on BAT to your cars (you have quiet a list there), not some 2002 Turbo you are Busting Knuckles on! We all know that you work for Sean, and he gets the Glory, and you're no more than a Shop Mutt that get the crumbs that fall off his plate. Is that your two-toned car above? Let's do a side by side of that one vs. the one on BAT, then let the usuals Pile On!

If your points were truly valid you would not be hiding behind your high horse of anonymity! Since you continue to hide behind a mask, I choose to ignore you. It takes two to tango, and I don't dance with anonymous partners. :b.....

Here is my personal '67 1600-2 that I am currently deep in the throws of restoration. Pick it clean or tear it a new one anytime you like, as long as you don't hide behind a silly mask. :b....

It seems you are fairly new to the faq--unless you just chose to hide for some reason. I know tom needs no defending at all on here as he has alot of friends and he knows his stuff. I do have a question for you--would you ever give PPI's or even well versed enough to do a PPI on a car? Tom has helped numerous buyers with PPI's and has helped me. I believe he drove over two hours to look at a car for me prior to bringing it out here to Hawaii. I guess thats what shop mutts do. I find it funny you question him and his knowledge. He pointed out issues that were not correct on the car--thats not him sitting on his royal higness chair--thats him just telling potential buys whats not correct for that model year. Most people build a car to their own liking. Some might want OEM stock, some want OEM Plus, and then some like custom.

Im sure others could chime on on Tom but who knows if they will--in my eyes he doenst need defending as his reputation should be enough.

just my .02.

Are you kidding me? You said that you are "deep in the throws of a restoration". The only throws that should be taking place, is Throwing that POS off of a Cliff. Now I truly understand, you make negative comments on other's work, then get your posse to pile on. And they certainly came running to your defense, like a Tom Jones Ass-Kissing Convention! You should never make a comment again about anyones Car, (Negative or Positive), if that POS 67 1600 is your best offering. The price is metal is good right now, save/make your self some dough by taking it ACROSS THE SCALE. You should get Top Dollar, because that is Primo Scrap Metal...
