I just spent the last four hours reading about PCV valves and how they work. It seems like everyone's setup is different. Some guys are running different air cleaners or valve covers or oil fill tubes. Let's not even start to mention the dreaded Road Tube.
Well here is my question. Let me start with the setup I am going to run. I have a 67 block and a 67 intake. The valve covers are the scripted type with no holes for anything. The oil fill tube is from what I believe to be the "open" system, that is there in NO bung on the side of the fill tube for the PCV. My block has been pluged where the adapter would go. So I need to resolve the dreaded PCV issue.
From different posters on this subject (Sauron, JohnZ, and Vintage 68
) I think that I may have a better grasp on where I need to go. The PCV system needs to have the intake side and an exhaust side (I think).
I am thinking of the intake side for my setup would be the regular oil fill tube with the vented cap (standard "open" 67 system).
The exhaust side I was thinking that I should unplug the hole by the distributor (sp) and insert the "adapter" (whatever the hell that thing is) and run that to the vacuum to the Quadrojet carb that I am going to run that I don't currently have.
Will this solve the dreaded PCV question? The problem is I am not sure of where to get the "adapter" that would go on the back of the engine. I did read one post that talked about a "dixie cup".... where would I get that?
Also I am under the impression that there are different kinds of PCV valves? which one would I need? part number? can I go to autozone and get it or sould I get a "Quality" one from a speed shop.
This is for a 67 Camaro. I am trying to get this as close to factory as possible so cutting hole into the VC are not an option. I could cut into the air cleaner but I think that that is done on the "closed" system, reverse PCV.
Am I close to what I need to do to get this engine to breath properly and not blow gaskets and stuff...
Thanks for reading my long winded question.....Seriously I have a headache from reading all these posts on this subject. I went through five pages of past PCV stuff..... I think I need a beer..
