:doh: Yup. good eye. I need to swap that around. the PCV does need to go to spacer. I got in a hurry and didnt reference my pre-breakdown photos. I bet that vac leak explains why I had to give it 5 sec. of start resulting in a solenoid lock up. I feel like the south end of a north bound donkey for that one. Thanks for catching that!
By the way the breather is connected to the flame arrester as well. I have 2 nipples, one 1/4" and one 1/2". I will also be doing a compression test Sunday. I will post results.
