Hi Carl,

Refrencing your valve covers or actually the breather hole gromets.



I have the same valve covers and run a PCV to the base of the carb. I have rubber gromets that don't leak but don't have a baffle and am sucking oil like you can't believe. My question is where did you come up with the gromet assembly you are using and is it a two piece that screws together, top and bottom to hold it to the valve cover. If so I could fabricate a baffle and use the same to hold it in place...

If the graphic doesn't load in the forum, it's alt_1.JPG from your web page... http://www.geocities.com/casanoc/

Thanks in advance!!

...Dennis

Dennis, Carl had told me he was out of town for the week so he may not see thus until the weekend. However, a while ago Carl had sent me the 'right angle' pcv valve he uses which along with a Moroso baffle with the slit in the bottom , gave me the setup you see in his website. A nice sanitary affair.

Thanks for the heads up Rick. Are you refering to a rubber gromet baffle. The ones that look like a plug but have a slit in them to reduce the oil pickup into the pcv?

Yes, the one I use has the step in the bottom with the slit facing to the side.

Dennis,

I believe he's talking about the MRG #5425; not just a slit in the bottom, but a stepped baffle.

Thanks for the pic Jody, I found these Moroso 68775's with the slot. and 68772's with a discription

Quote:
Designed especially for those using Moroso extra tall valve covers without the integral OEM-style oil control baffle. Can be used with any valve cover without internal baffling and a 1.22" diameter hole. Works with all popular GMPCVvalves; 1 per package. Special design keeps oil out of the PCV valve; made from oil resistant rubber. Will not clear stud girdles
Do you think the 68772's are the same as the 5425's?

The 68772's look like they're made for a pcv to go straight into; smaller hole in the top. The 5425's are for a breather which won't work for you if you want to put a pcv valve straight into them (sorry!!!).

The description for the 68772 says pcv grommet/baffle; sounds right to me.

Actually they work with a stud girdle. You just need tall valve covers, double up the VC gaskets and trim a little!

Dennis,

Yep, I'm in Louisville this week. The Louisville Slugger plant is very cool!

We may have different covers. Mine are a mid-height GMPP cover that have both holes and baffles. There is a picture of them on the Sallee website.

I just use a standard grommet, the PCV arrangement listed above, and a fresh air tube plumbed to the air cleaner base. The PCV is really nice. If anyone wants one I can find the phone number for the guy that sells them or buy one for you. For the valve and the adapter bushing is about $60.

If I ever get versed in html I can move my website to my cable modem company server and dump the non-linkable geocities site.

Carl

Mine are the tall version...
No holes until I got ahold of them and no baffles!! I picked up an off brand gromet baffle that looks like the mrg5425 on the under side and fits the pcv valve I'm using for a dollar. I have one slight problem though!! The hole saw I used left me with a 1 5/16" hole instead of a 1 1/4" hole. I think I can improvise and make it work without too much problems... I had a bit of a search finding gromets that fit in the first place!! You should have seen my reaction after measuring the holes!!

Thanks for the info guys...

...Dennis
