I see that there is a blocked off vaccum nipple on the back side of my Edelbrock Torker intake, right below the mounting flange for the carb. THere is also a vaccum port on the carb, this is where the PCV valve was connected. My questions is: Can I block off the carb fitting and connect the PCV valve to the manifold fitting and accomplish the same thing? I would think they are both at the same vaccum "potential" of full manifod vaccum.
Lemme' know your thoughts...
Thanks guys!

Either fitting will work fine.

The PCV is usualy hooked up to the carb base while the manifold fitting is used frequently with power brakes and other vacuum accessories.
