I've recently purchased a Land running with a V8 on carbs...

Problem is I know nothing about carbs at all.... So after a bit of advice / few questions..

I've probably done around 1000miles in it so far, and apart from running out of petrol a few times no issues at all!

Every other 3.5 V8 I've seen on Google images however seems to have a different layout of piping entirely.

- Firstly, flame traps? As far as I can see it doesnt appear to have any?

- There is a small breather towards the back, at the centre on the top of the engine that constantly produces a high pitch whistles when running.... When covered it kills the engine? Should this be connected to something - or even put a small breather filter on top of it?

Anything else pointed out that looks a-miss on the photo would be greatly appreciated
