Default RE: pcv manifold adapters

If you are not nostalgic about your blowby pipe that you now have on the back of the intake manifold, you can fashion it into the necessary port. If you ever want to go back to the blowby pipe, they do reproduce those.

You just neeed to cut the blowby pipe where it makes the 90 turn off the back. To that weld or epoxy a hose fitting that will connect to a 1/2 inside diameter rubber hose. You can get these brass hose fittings at the auto store or Home Depot. Paint it black or silver and you are finished.

The hose from the fitting then connects to the PCV valve which then connects to a brake line to the intake manifold vacuum port.
