C15 1959 Oil Tank

I'm just finishing putting together my rebuilt C15 - I can remember where most bits go ... most bits :-)

Anybody knows what fits (if anything) to the breather line at the top of the oil tank - short stub pipe sticking out.

Thanks Alan F.

Long time since I had his big brother, a B40, but I'd guess originally it had a piece of rubber tubing stuck on it directing the oily fumes to the rear chain maybe? Probably like most of that sort of set-up, when the pipe perished or was lost it never was replaced and the pipe stub was just left as-is.

Thanks Tman
That is what I have done - stuck a line to the chain.
If I can now just recycle the casing oil drip - I'll have cracked it :-)
(I don't mind small drips - it's character! (also cant be a***d to do an engine rebuild until it really needs it).
