ive fitted a weber replacement carb to my cabby it has a k&n filter on top also ,but there is no where for the breather pipe from the top of the rocker to go, so i brought a little filter to bolt on , but there seems to be alot of smoke coming from the breather .should this happen if so why if not how do i correct this problem

Its not smoke its oil vapour,

its pretty dangerous if you can smell it inside the car as its pretty toxic

you could get rid of the little filter and run a catch tank if you preffered, with or without an oil return to the sump

youd have to tap the sump, I probably wouldnt bother

any catch tank will be fine, some people just use redbull cans etc

or something like this;

Into the tank then you'll have to empty it every now and then and top your oil level up
