Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

All I know is that it works. The Max1 is not a radical cam.
There may be a valve that “fits” better, but I’m pleased.
If you know of a better pcv valve for my engine, give me a part # please........

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Yep....all of the ones I tried are for engines with displacements very similar to my flathead. The one I settled on is for a 283 SBC.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Finished the pcv valve install last night.
Installed the tube beneath the manifold. Drilled and tapped the manifold at the road draft tube location and the carb block off plate for 1/4” pipe thread...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

This particular valve is a Borg Warner PV255. It is built to use horizontally. Same valve that’s used on the road draft tube of a mid-late 60s SBC. 1/4” pipe thread on block end.
Hope it works well....

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Once I find out how well it works, I’ll change the rubber line to copper.
I should have the tube that goes under the manifold by the weekend.
Thanks for everyone’s help.
Norris

Then I’ll get...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Thanks Merc! I’ve seen those before! I think I can easily perform that minor surgery on my Navarro.
Thanks so much for your assistance!
Maybe with that modification I can run one vacuum fitting...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

I’m running the two end carbs....center is blocked off. It runs much better running the two end carbs directly connected to each other than with 3 running progressive. I can, at this point easily add...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Hey Merc!
What if I cut a 3/8” or so 1/2” deep slot between the two holes where the carb would go (which now has a block off plate)to join the left and right plenum. The left and right plenums are...

Yes it does have the machined hole and the pathway to the boss on the topside.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

That’s where I’ve decided to put a pcv valve. The way my manifold is designed, I’m going to need to pickup vacuum from each side of the manifold.....so I don’t lean out any cylinders. I don’t really...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Thanks 1940.....I'll look into that also.

Wayne at Dennis Carpenter says they have one in a NOS part #! I can't order it until Monday because they are running a short crew today(understandable)....

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Thank you sir!
It’s 1 5/16” best I can measure in that hole!
That just reminded me that I have some snap gauges.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Thanks.....I don’t, but can probably find that piece and build one if I have to.
I would not have known that if you hadn’t brought it to my attention!

Ok, all I need is the tube that goes into the hole in the right front of the lifter valley. My early Navarro manifold does not have a hole in it for the road draft tube. I’ll be cutting and capping...

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

Thanks....looked there. I also put it in the parts wanted section.
I think the tube has an OD of 1 5/16”.
I don’t imagine many of these got discarded or saved.
Maybe I can find an old block...

“Inside” part of road draft tube

Where can I buy the part of a road draft tube that comes up from the block up to the intake manifold? My 53 Merc is running an early Navarro manifold so there’s no road draft setup.
I pulled the...
