I can assure you I've removed every possible piece I may end up bringing it to a shop to have it cleaned ultrasonically if this doesn't work.

A larger precurved hose goes from front upper portion of airbox to breather opening top of crank case.
That's it......easy-peasy.
This is exactly what I needed Thanks! Since I'm having the these issues with rust and such would it make sense to have an inline fuel filter. Or is that something I should only add once I get it running steady?

I did take them apart before I set up the electrolysis and cleaned out some junk but I'll make sure to do it again and double check for tears before I hook the tank back up. worst case scenario I could just keep them on RES since that doesn't seem to leak as much as in the on position
