The peice of gauze in the panching plate, I think that's how you spell it, filters the oil from the engine blow by gases and recycles them through the carbs. I use the foam part of a kitchen sponge, always have done.

So do I, cos Julie told me to! :o

Just a small issue that might confuse people.

I call the black plastic box connected to the back of the carbs as the air box.
Where the air filter lives is the air filter case or box.

Some people seem to be calling the air filter case the air box. Am I right or are they?

Confused 😕
