i had to solder the tube back on the back of the air breather. i got a little to much on it and it puddled off to the side a little. i got it painted and it isn’t noticeable. also wondering about the float for the fluid tank. did it have a rubber gasket under it or some kind of sealer? what ever it is supposed to be, this one was dried out so much that i couldn’t tell if it was a gasket or sealer. i did find that a rubber gasket we use at work fits perfect. i think i will try to use it. the only problem with it is that it has one hole that is offset just a little. i will have to drill a new hole in the gasket for that one hole. also got other parts painted today. i just sold an NOS Cadillac part on eBay for enough to get my heads done so they will be next.
