Default Interesting day and input appreciated

2000 CC FE 290 running like a dog. Hiccupping on start and blowing smoke out like a laboratory Beagle. She was running really horrible until I pulled the EGR pipe. At this point the cart had been awful, no power, poor starting then from nowhere it runs fantastic, no hesitation no nothing. I probe the pipe and NOTHING No obstructions whatsoever. Connect her back up and impecable behaviour, runs like a Bear, but why??????

That was what started it all Tom, I had bad connection on a wire which I traced to corrosion in a bullet connector. Until I fixed it the cart was very hit and miss but after the repair it started smoking really badly. Oil was freshly changed with a new filter, level was correct etc. Had me scratching my head until I remembered a thread on here regarding a blocked breather. Now, I don't believe in coincidences but I pulled the breather from the valve cover and "kaboom" she takes off like a raped ape. What gets me is that the pipe and vents were clear, replaced the connection and it still runs great. Is it possible that the vent pipe may be partially collapsing under running conditions but returns to normal by the time I get the seat up to check it ? It's got me baffled but the cart is running great for now.

I suppose I could perch on the bodywork with the seat removed but I shudder to think what might happen if I hit a bump and slid in the engine bay arse backwards. That might be interesting to explain at the emergency room
