By the frame but from looking at old posts it seems it should be mounted into the spigot on the engine casing? Also my bike has K&N's so obviuosly the old airfilter box has been removed. Thus the vent to atmoshere which used to run through this box now simply runs down to the back of the engine. ... so my 2nd question is this... should this vent to atmosphere have a valve on it? ,The breather system should have one valve in it and it should be AFTER the breather box on the line that vents to atmosphere. THis is to stop wet cold air entering the breather box and mixing with hot oily air and making mayonaise or aioli. Guzzi's earlier attempts put two valves between the breather box and crankcase - stupid. If you're bike has the old breather box and not the breather box in the frame like the later square fins then remove them - one is hidden in the supply pipe in the breather box - remove with hammer and screwdriver. This will also stop the engine pumping oil up the return line and out of the engine. Any 4 cylinder automotive spring loaded PCV valve will do pretty well. You can improve the efficiency of the breather box by lightly stuffing it with stainless steel wool or such. If the rings are good and the sump level is right it will not drip oil IME.,,,

Hi, I've got a Honda 750 four K7 1977. It's got a back pressure problem where it blows oil out of the head breather. took pipe out of air box so it ewould run better, & it does, but still loads coming...


The rings or valve seals are letting the compressed fuel mix escape thereby pressurising the rest of the engine
The froth is old oil mixed with water - drain & flush engine

Where is check ball valve on my 1982 electaglide


The check ball valve is in the oil pump. When you look at the top of the oil pump, the check ball is under the innermost threaded plug, the low one, not the high one. You will have to drain the oil tank before you remove this ball. Take out the plug, the sping, and use a magnet to remove the ball. Buy two new balls, they aren't expensive.
Now, drop on of the new balls into the hole. Take a brass drift and a hammer and gently tap on the ball. This will reform the seat that the ball sits in. Remove this ball and install the other new ball, spring, and threaded plug. Refill the oil tank.
Then, remove the crankcase breather line from the rear of the air cleaner. Plug the hole in the rear plate of the air cleaner. Purchase one of the small breather filters (/V-Twin #40-0352) and put it in the end of the crankcase breather hose and relocate the breather underneath the bike.
