The pcv valve is a Standard Motor Products V100 and cross references to C1DZ6A666B, 3165552 and others.

The carb spacer gasket is Fel-Pro 13303 and cross references to 660184, C2AZ9447B and others.

Talking Success

I finally got this done. The 1962/63 Carb Spacer worked just fine. I do not bow my hood one iota, even though everything raised up about 1" (less in the rear).

Regulator valve in line. Ran her today for about 10 miles around town; lo & behold, no fumes affecting the passenger, and no smoke coming from rear exhaust. Had to replace the intake manifold studs with 3" -18 & 24 in the front, 2 1/2" -18 & 24 in the rear (thank you Summit Racing). Fresh gaskets, no leaks around the carb or spacer. Made sure to clean intake manifold and paint & polish the carb spacer.

Just have to jack up the front end to get the road draft tube off the frame. I'll take care of this over the weekend.

I was very pleased Betty started right up with little hesitation. If anyone is interested I can post pics tomorrow (Friday 12/18).

I am just so pleased this finally worked out, and I never could have done it without you folks on this forum.

Now, just need to get those valve covers off for new paint, and I am golden (or argent silver for '61).

Geoff - I'd love to see the end results. No big hurry with the holidays and all.

Know what you mean about no more fumes. I hated the finger pointing when I pulled up to a traffic light and smoke whiffed out from the hood scoop too.

Funny - I did the same thing - very carefully shut the hood to see how bad the air cleaner was going to hit - and it cleared!!

Glad it all worked out.

Eric

Default Love to share...especially when it works!

HI Erik:

Sure thing, below are some pics I just took. I didn't want to remove the carb, but I think these 3 pics show the set up and the 62/63 spacer well enough.

I took a hacksaw to the water ports. I will plug those with filler, sand and repaint next time I pull the carb off.

I did paint the spacer, but when checking for leaks, my carb spray took off some of the paint!

Question... the whole setup runs from the back of the intake manifold thru the PCV valve and then to the carb spacer?

And thats it?

Looks very simple. The setup in the TRL has it plumbed through the air cleaner and the breather on the valve cover?

Thanks Eric

What you are describing is a closed system. Prior to 1965 the pcv setup was an open system. There was no hose from the oil cap to the air cleaner.

Default PCV Setup

Hi Eric:

Yes, the PCV hose runs right into the Carb Spacer. These pics below show a 1962/63 Carb Spacer. I used one very similar to this, and just cut off the cooling hose connections.







It was really just that simple.

Some folks either drilled a hole in the back of the air cleaner or in one of the valve covers. I found this the easier and more effective method, since spacer feeds all 8 cylinders. I also wanted to preserve the integrity of the air cleaner and valve covers.

That's the same carb spacer as my 64.
