ok I've been a lurker for sometime and just introduced myself in my first 2 posts.
so I've been struggling with mechanics... dealer has caused more problems than fixed so now that I have time I need to start doing the fixing
Currently I've tracked down an oil leak to the left Blow-By house where it attaches to the head. The rubber tubing is cracked at the top and is lightly spraying oil on everything, oh joy![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I need to replace this hose (it's split slightly on the top) which runs up to a black plastic container near the head tube.
1) If I change out this house what type of hose should I buy?, and will that line be oil filled when I remove the clamp
2) Should I buy new clamps, safety wire, or get screw style clamps for the new hose?
3) on the right side Throttle body it looks like the connector is not latched? Can I latch this without the special tool?[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Thanks for any suggestions!
