“Next you’ll install the oil pump and breather, along with the filler cap. The pump feeds fuel from the sump to the engine, while the

Materials: All of the parts in this stage are plastic.
Oil Pump and Breather System
Retrieve your Engine assembly from the previous stage. Firmly press the keyed post of the Oil Breather Separator Box into this matching keyed hole of the Cylinder Head (Right), as shown.
