Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Ya' that's an advantage I noticed after installing my system.
Had a small leak at the front crank seal before and virtually none after installation.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

That's great, you are well on your way to eliminating crankcase emissions and improving the atmosphere :)

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

The setup looks like it will work well.
The only thing that may be an issue is the positioning of the valve.
All the ones I am familiar with are meant to be mounted vertically not horizontally.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

My 4bbl. carb with PCV port has a 'Y' type groove to connect the ports.
The grooves are appox. the same width as show and half as deep....

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Then the method you plan on using rather than inside plumbing, makes sense.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Does your manifold have the hole that the vertical tube fits into machined into it?
Does it also have the associated pathway to the opposite side cast into it?...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

This is the way I checked for vacuum using the oil fill tube as the source.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

If you have an original road draft tube, a portion of it can be reworked to fit.
