Hello
Have a stock 327, and in the process of fixing some oil leaks and other minor issues

the engine currently has the fill cap on the valve cover, and the front opening for the fill tube on the manifold has a plug in it

I already have a set of correct valve covers, and a fill tube and cap

aside from those changes - is there anything else that needs to be done to move the fill tube back to the front of the manifold ? It’s an original GM cast iron manifold btw

thanks !

You would want to run the stock 327 PCV set up from rear of block into carb if you are using stock "solid" type VC.

Otherwise just remove the plug on your manifold where the oil fill tube originally went and tap in the new one. Use a wood block between tube & hammer

Thanks
The original setup had a Pcv from the drivers side valve cover / front to the manifold vacuum connection on the front of the carb

then on the passenger side - a connection on the rear of the valve cover to the air cleaner base

is that correct with the oil filler tube in the front of the manifold ?

that is right if VC had those provisions

My 67, 327, had solid VC with PCV plumbed from back of carb to port on rear, top, of motor. Oil fill/breather tube on front of intake manifold.

IDK what year your car is but the way you describe is correct plumbing if the VC are originals
