None left! Angry

If you need them, there are still some available outside the UK:
I don't know which make they are, but I have a set on the way for my Spider, so I'll know in a few days  Smiley

Yes if the oil breather is not going back to the airbox on OE fashion. They just do not want oil on the track. For road purposes I could have just used a long curved pipe, but then the oil vapour and condensate would get blown over the underside of the car. As it is I will keep the outlet any from the brake discs and exhaust.

The car spent the night out.  Very heavy frost first thing this morning.  The frost is now covered in about 3 cms of snow.  I wound the window up as the snow started

I just tested this with 1 Litre of water and there is room to spare with no overflow. So even though it looks small it does the job.

Hi Ian

A lot of head scratching has gone into where to put things and I needed to use every space with the strut brace, brake bias valve, Accusump extra fuse boxes, FI regulator etc. 1L is the typical minimum for track day scrutineers. I think I have 1.17L but will actually measure it with some water later today.

Using an old beer or coke tin is no longer well thought of. I have used old gear oil plastic bottles and cycle drink bottles with plumbing fittings before, but decided doing it neatly might be better all round. Lots of oil catch tanks for sale, but they are sized too small for the VX. The VX has a BIG breather needing 22mm ID pipe where as the 2000 Carb only needs 19mm. With 19mm I would have used A/N 12 fittings and could buy a cheap round catch tank that would not fit very neatly next to the battery.

I would have gone with 2x 45% outlets, but wanted to be sure to clear the Accusump.

NB Oil catch Tanks need to be higher than the breather so oil vapour condensates and drain back as much as possible. Inside my tank it is not straight through. The pipes cross so the vapour does not just blow straight through.

Never seen a catch tank in the place of the battery tray washer bottle. Why hasnít it been done before? Perfect position.
Curious about the tank rules for capacity. Is that a track day requirement or a calculation based on engine capacity/oil sump capacity?

Another nice piece of work
