Default Internal Breather Tube

My internal breather tube for the road draft vent is missing and I need to make one. Is this pipe 1 5/16 diameter and 5 1/2 inches long? This is for 8ba motor and does anyone sell this item?

With all the bad engines/blocks around you would think there would be a lot of these type of parts available.

Ya' know, there probably is. Hopefully, they'll be coming out of the woodwork after your post.

Is this tube necessary on an 8ba? Did OEM engines have them? I bought 2 8ba engines to build. Neither one of them has the internal tube. I am confused.

I have one.....what’s your address.
PM me.....I’ll ship it in the morning...free. A couple of guys on here did the same for me a couple of weeks ago and I ended up with an extra.

You can try an ad in the "parts wanted" section of this forum, but be aware that the scammers watch it big time. I did, and immediately had three responses from scammers.....they are easy to spot!
