Hi Top,

The large end of the PCV valve itself inserts into the rubber grommet in the tube. The "other" end of the PCV valve attaches to a hose that you then connect to a convenient source of non-ported manifold vacuum.

You can see how I did mine in this photo. One end of the hose connects to a fitting on the front of the intake manifold directly in front of the carburetor, the other end of the hose is clamped on the PCV valve itself, which is in turn inserted into the grommet on the valley cover.

Thanks for the flowers.

Those dohickies are in the water crossover, and the one on the drivers side is the coolant temp sending unit. The one on the passenger side is the thermostat/switch for the electric fans I'm running instead of an engine driven fan.

Thanks. I had to bend that sheet metal lip that runs along the top of the radiator up just a little in order to fit the radiator under it. I didn't like the way it looked after that, so that length of foam was my solution for covering it up. It provides a little cushion too so the top of the radiator doesn't rub and bang into the core support. I'm not sure how well it's going to hold up under actual use though, guess I'll find out. :cheers
