Thanks Gary, I would like this engine to appear close to OEM but I am not too perfectionistic about it. This alu intake resembles the orig. cast iron that I have on there now. But sure if I can have some improvements on the car, a little better power or fuel efficiency, improvement on braking etc. as long as it doesn't change the original look (too much). I have read that the orig. pcv or actually there wasn't except a tube in the back pointing down smelly oil gasses could be smelled inside the car sometimes, could use a bit of an upgrade as well.
regards=ron

The BIRD used road draft tubes until 1963 (1961 CA). You can either plumb a PCV System as OEM original appearance or a custom look that will be harder to spot (PCV being better for the engine).

Suggest PERTRONIX II for the distributor and what type of carburetor are you planning on using?

It will be easier for me to supply the info by E-MAIL and then Ray can go through it to show the board later.

If this is OK with you, my E-MAIL is KULTULZ@msn.com.

Or we can do it via this venue if desired.

Default fomoco alu intake any info on this?

Gary, I see we share the same fondness for the same fine example of female pulchritude! I have long been an admirer of her.

If you sent those pix to me to post, (which I will be glad to do) I did not receive them...

Now watch how you talk about my flower...

I am waiting to see if he wants to do this by E-MAIL or the forum. Of course we would send you the E-MAILS to post the info here.

Thanks Gary,

here the pcv pictures that Gary has send me. several pcv connection options.

# 3 & 4 are OEM - The next two are a mild modification (the hose will go to your spacer) - The last photo is a very inconspicuous method using a later PCV valve. It too would tie into the carb spacer.
