Default PCV For ARDUN

Anybody put a PCV Valve on an ARDUN converted 8ba Flathead? How did you do it without destroying the original intake cover or valve covers?

Tom I run a PCV on my ARDUN I located it in the valley cover just in front of where the stock fuel pump mount is located. My valley cover is home made and the PCV I used was threaded on the cover end so I just added the thread and screwed it in place. You could do it the same way on the original ARDUN valley cover the threaded hole is not big in other words no destruction of the original cover is needed.

My block is a 59A but the same idea will work on the 8BA using the valley cover. I will try and get a picture.

Austin blower manifold, I intend to put a blower on it, but made the 3x2 to run without the blower. The PVC valve is as I remember is slant 6 because it was the smallest I could find to fit where I have it. Its all a tight fit. There is a baffle under the valley cover so it don't suck up oil. Still have to put a filler/vent pipe in the back of the valley cover. I have a original valley cover but it gets in the way of everything, so I made up a new one.

Heres how I did my PCV installation it screws into the home made valley cover follow down the copper tubing to see it. Also located off the copper tubing is the engine vacuum gauge. Everything else for the Large SCOT blower assembly is also home made your typical back yard Hot Rod project. As I wrote previously Tom there's no difference between the 59A or 8BA when it comes to venting the crankcase in our applications.
