I am putting together a 396 running a weiand high rise manifold and a holly 780. There is no port on the front of the carb or front of the manifold to connect the pcv hose. There is a large port on the rear of the carb base which I have the power brakes connected to. The pcv is suppose to be connected to manifold vacumn. Should I share it with the power brakes, go to the base of the air cleaner or pull the manifold and drill and tap a fitting.
Thanks Bill

I'd tap the manifold for the power brake fitting and run the PCV to the carb base like the original setup. There's no vacuum at the air cleaner base to speak of.
