PCV valve grommet

Has anyone replaced the PCV valve grommet that is underneath the intake manifold on the engine valley. I just pulled the old one out but it was distroyed, hence my vacume issues with the carb, do I need to remove the intake manifold to POP the new one in there or should I be able to wedge the new one back in the same way

That's what I figured, I just wanted to double check.

You'll find that the new ones are not rock hard with age and that they push right in place very easily. No worries.

I had to order it from Ames, should get in today. I was having trouble with my carb struggling under load until WOT. I realized that the grommet was shot and that is why my vaccum was not working right.

If the new grommet is too tight, a little grease around the lip that pushes in will aid in installation.

A bad PCV grommet will have nothing to do with poor WOT performance: there is no vacuum at WOT.

Did the grommet fix your stumble?
