PCV valve

when I cleaned up my motor in my 1967 327 I changed the valve covers. The PCV valve was in the passenger side valve cover and ran to the carb. The new valve cover has the same looking grommet in it and The PCV valve goes in but not far enough it hits a metal plate that I assume is a baffle but so any ideas on what I can do to make the PCV valve fit ?

Re: PCV valve

Re: PCV valve

Is the pcv valve inserted through a rubber grommet ?

Maybe a thicker grommet would help ?

Re: PCV valve

A thick grommet that held it tighter would hold it in place but it would still be sticking half out of the cover

Re: PCV valve

I had the same problem with a set of old school Mickey Thompson valve covers. The PCV valve bottoms out on the baffle/plate, blocks the valve and the engine runs bad.

I went to the hardware store and bought some clear tubing that was the same inside diameter of the PCV valve. Lets says that 3/4 of an inch normally goes into the grommet but yours only allows 1/2 an inch and it bottoms the valve on the baffle/plate. Cut a piece of tubing that is 3/8ths of an inch, this will allow you to put the PCV valve in the grommet and allow 1/8 of an inch clearance between the baffle/plate and the valve. Works like charm.

Good luck with your project

Re: PCV valve

Or if the PCV valve is 3/4" dia, why not drill a 1/2" hole in the baffle plate ?

Let the valve rest against it and it won't be blocked.
