Re: WTB Diesel breather tube 1Z AAZ AHU Part# 028103491J (89GLI16V)

Or make yourself a permanent fix, using a breather flange from early 1.6D (has 13mm breather barb), a rear Head to heater hose from same (N-S application) connects to top plastic on TDI; a short curved heater hose from A1 (straight works too) for connecting to the A1 metal flange you bolted on the engine.
Use a 1/2" PCV coupling to join hoses or...(instead, here I add an 'oil trap + drain' here, via a 3/4 x 3/4 x 1" PVC fitting w/ cap on Male fitting)
Cost ~ $6 for the new hoses and ~$3 for PVC fittings. (or free if you have stuff from past projects, like underground sprinklers). I robbed the A1 block flange from an engine headed for scrap. There are lots hanging around old VW diesel shops (or check your neighbor's brier patch for an abandoned D- Rabbit)

Thank you for taking the time to post some very useful info, any pics to see the way the final product came out? I have a couple of 1.6 diesels that wouldnt mind donating parts
Thanks again
