There were two styles of PCV used, one for the OEM cast iron intakes and another style for the alum HP series.

Both are shown on the attached photo-

The most easy way to sort this I guess is to drill a hole in my carburator spacer and connect it there. I found the EV-1 PCV Valve for 1962-1964 Ford Thunderburd here in Sweden, so I guess it will be pretty strait forward operation. I have one question though; Why is it not possible ( or wise ) to connect it at where I have this extra brass bolt in the manifold? See pic.

You can source the vacuum signal there but here lies the problem.

The reason they used the carb spacer inlet (other than cost) is you want the crankcase fumes drawn into the carb mounting plenum so that the fumes can be evenly distributed among all cylinders. You can put it there, but cylinders #3 & #4 may draw a greater amount of fumes leading to fouling of those cylinders. You can source it there but maybe will want to monitor those cylinder sparks plugs for awhile for possible fouling.

A little update how I solve this. First I made a aluminium piece in my lathe, and have it welded into the carburator spacer. Then I made another in steel, that I also drilled out in the back, so it didnīt came out too heavy, with a tight slightly coned end to get a nice fit and pressed that in gently and to avoid leak, and gave it a few spot welds to keep it in place. ( The part that goes into the manifold was not possible to take out, so this was my only option ) In between, I placed the PCV valve. Pretty easy installation. Hope to get less fumes while driving as well as less oil on the garage floor

Would it make sense to plumb this into the air cleaner housing instead of using the carb spacer?

I have changed the Oil filler cap/ventilation to a closed model with a pipe on itīs side, and connected that one to the Air Cleaner Housing.

Anders, which direction does the arrow point (on the side of the PCV valve)? Did you push the hose over the threads on one side of the valve? Rockauto.com sells PCV valves that have push-on hose fittings on both sides. One example is the, STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS Part #V112. This valve goes on a 1978 Pontiac with a 350 cubic inch engine.




Marcelo, using the air cleaner is a 'passive' vent system that doesn't use a PCV valve. It is still another good way to reburn block gasses. They usually come off the valve cover with a cap that has a hose connection and it leads to the side or bottom of the air cleaner. I like the kind with the small filter on the inside of the air cleaner to trap oil and solids. Even though the passive system doesn't work as well, I really like it because it never messes with the fuel mixture. - Dave
