View Full Version : PCV Valve for a '64
11-30-2015, 02:06 PM
The big three auto parts stores here (O's, A's and A's) didn't list the PCV valve for my '64 so I did a little research and found one that does.
Amazon says it doesn't fit either, but I just put it in and it works perfectly.

Rockauto has it for $4.30. It's not listed under 1964 Thunderbird either but is listed under 1963 which has the same PCV setup.
Hi, this may sound funny as I have a 64 .
But excactly where does this part fit ?

It goes in the pipe at the back of the intake. Here's the diagram.

Take the air cleaner off and you'll see it behind the carburetor. It is screwed into a fitting, and that fitting is on a bracket that is bolted to the top of the intake and holds it at about a 45 degree angle towards the passenger side. It accepts gasses from the large fitting near the bottom of the manifold and through a curved steel tube (item 6758 in John's diagram), which are sucked into the back of the carburetor spacer and burned along with the fuel.
txs, will have a look. my carbspacer is aftermarket ,so no fitting there.
I had to tear my edelb carb apart today as the fuel filter malfunctioned and filled it up with fine granulated rust.
someone looked at my engine and said it is a 65 ,is there any difference regarding this part ?

The PCV valve was moved to the passenger side valve cover in 1965. You still need the fitting on the carb spacer.

Your Edelbrock carb has a PCV port so you don't need the port in the spacer.
now it makes sense.
