Re: Fuel tank breather tube for T25

It's just standard fuel hose as far as I remember, I just bought some from Halfrauds, cut to length and replaced.

This might help.

Re: Accelerator cable

Very simple. Look into the engine bay with the engine running, get someone to pump the throttle a couple of times to see which bit moves, it's on the side of the carb/carbs.
