What breather fits original stock 350 covers?

I looked at 3 stores and couldn't find a push in that would fit. I wanted a k&n but was open to any. Hole in cover is small...about 3/4-1 inch diameter.

Thumbs up Re: What breather fits original stock 350 covers?

K&N makes their small push-in type breathers in many sizes from 3/8" up to the 1.22" stock GM size.
I often use the 3/4" for marine applications with the small valve cover holes - their part no. 62-1160.
I also have used their unit for stock Chevy valve cover with a 1.22" hole size - part no. 62-1490.

If your local parts house can't order you can get from Summit or Jegs.

Hope this helps.

I bought the 62-1160 from Summit. Do you know what grommet fits that cover and breather? I just have a hole to fill in valve cover.

I was able to buy a breather locally. You might need to look in another aisle for the grommet.

Sold:
1968 Base hardtop 250 with a P̶G̶ built 2004r
Offy intake
Holley 390 CFM carb
Langdon split header to a 2.5" exhaust
Mild cam
Custom interior

I find the grommet is dependent on the type and manufacture of the valve cover.
The OEM stamped covers will usually take the Dorman #42323, but the #42321, 42333 or 42052 types are often also usable,
The aftermarket vary due to stamping type/material type/hole size they used in construction.
I also find the #42062 is useful for OEM look when plumbing the fresh air intake for a air filter source set-up.

These can often be found at you local auto parts stores under the "HELP" brand.
