Interesting 20v cam cover mod
Just spotted this modification to the cam covers of a 20v silvertop at AUTOnGRAPHIC:

My best guess is that the owner solves two things here:
1. Breather pipes on both covers (he blocked off the standard pipe)
2. Higher position of the breather pipes to prevent oil going out during drifts.

For the completeness of the thread, here is the Charmant it has been built into:

The second is a bit unclear as I only heard complains about the 16v design.
Anyone got a different guess? Dumb question

That´s what it does, never saw or heard anyone complaining about the 16V oil problem on a 20v engine...
