Lhm tank cap y piece

Post by Vince Pepper » Tue Jun 17, 2014 12:48 pm

Has anyone got a new or good used y piece that fits the low pressure return pipes to the lhm cap, or an alternative fix ?

The bit from the Y piece onwards only goes into the wing - I've just connected the plastic pipe directly to the LHM cap with a short bit of rubber hose, and removed the second piece of pipe altogether. doesn't seem to make any difference.

I've done that too and its fine as well. As the cap is not a tight fit sufficent aspiration occurs around the cap.

I used an old fish tank air pipe 'T' piece I had knocking around, seems to work just as well too.
