Valve cover breather pipe...early MGB engine

Hello All,

I have a 3 main bearing 63' MGB engine installed in my MGA roadster, and the 
valve cover that came with the engine has the breather pipe. Is this breather 
pipe really necessary? Its not connected to anything (were they originally 
connected to something on the engine?) and I am thinking about replacing the 
existing cover with one of the aluminum ones. Most of them come without the 
breather pipe. Am I asking for trouble here by replacing it with a 
breatherless cover? Any help is appreciated.........and as usual thanks to 
the fellow MG listers.......and HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!
