899cc or 1108cc?

Id reckon the breather's come off the rocker/ cam gear cover, cos I know mine is loose, and I do get the occasional whiff of oil (not major at all..)

sorry, 899cc.

whereabouts is the breather pipe? between engine & bulkhead? I've got a Haynes but it doesn't help much.

the pipe is comming out from your left hand side of your filter box and connects to the engine next toe the oil cap.

yup, found it - was leaking at the rocker cover end, the Fiat clip wasn't holding tight. Now secured with a jubilee clip. New std air filter fitted, no more smells yet.
