Re: PCV routing question

One should go to the carb base plate and the other to the air cleaner.

Are you planning on retaining the '67 Intake Manifold or using the '82 parts?

Re: PCV routing question

I am running Weind tunnel ram. Both valve covers (Moroso tall) have a spot for pcv. I am building this from scratch so I really don't know what I need, it is in a 1967 camaro. I need a diagram or something like that. Thanks

Re: PCV routing question

Since you are not using the '67 parts you can proceed as was said in the other reply.
You just need to install the PCV in one cover hole, (the factory used the left (driverside) valve cover.
Then install the necessary fittings and tube in the other valve cover to the air cleaner base, on the inside of the filter element.
You could also just install a 'breather' in the other hole v.s. routing to the air cleaner base - but, the air cleaner hook-up is better.

Hope this helps;
John

Am I reading too much into this post? If he's doing a tunnel ram, he's obviously going to run it at WOT at the track and don't need no PCV system.

However, if he's bound and determined to run a street set-up, he'll need to run a hose from the valve cover mounted PCV valve to the carb base plate, a controlled vacuum leak. He'll have to place a vented cap on the other valve cover to circulate air as Vintage & Rogers suggest.

Re: PCV routing question

Not planning on taking it to the track. Just want to run it on the street. I used to run a ram on a 283. It ran fine.
