    Got oil leaks?The return of the PVC returns to the air cleaner at the breather element

        OX look on the back side of the intake closed to the firewall. You well see a black o-ring on the left side of the intake looking at the firewall.That's were the pcv valve goes. Then the hose goes from the pcv valve to the front of the carb in the middle. Lower part of the carb. I have a 600cfm performer manual choke. Should be the same for an Electric choke. Upper

              What doesn't make sense. That's were the vavle is and that's were it hooks up. That's what the Edelbrock manual said. Runs fine and haven't had a problem with it. Is it a pvc valve or a pcv valve. Am I saying the wrong one, either way that's how it's hooked up. You never said in the pm if your rig is a rolling frame.

                I got out my Edelbrock Intake Intructions and here is a few lines of what it states.

                Some stock AMC manifolds dont have a hole for a grommet/PCV valve. Instead there is a 3/8" Tube Pipe threaded into the intake manifold between the carburetor and firewall clamped to hose between the Pipe and Carburetor.

                If you want to add a PVC valve to these engines you must purchase J4006019 which adapted this thread to a frommet fitting used with an inline PVC valve.

                  Upper mine is the way you describe. I went through hell trying to figure all mine out and I'm pretty sure it's right.

                    I think the misunderstanding is WHERE THE PCV IS AND WHERE the vac. source is from. The VALVE ITSELF IS ALWAYS IN A VALE COVER but where the vac. source is always differnt. Usually through the carb. air cleaner.

                      Gnarly It's the same as mine just a different carb. The stock 2bbl intake that's in the garage has the threaded pipe fitting. can't find the stupid camrea to take a pic to show ya. Redtail there are no holes in my valve covers. look on page 170 of 4wd book the one that has the tj v8 converstion. Look at the valve covers. If your not gonna listen to me then listen to gnarly. Look at his pic, no holes. I'm tired on beatin this dead horse. Upper

                        PCV means "POSITIVE CRANKCASE VENTILATION" how would venting your intake manifold to carb. do anything? The PCV valve goes into the valve cover and the hose connects to the carb or intake manifold for a vac source.The other hose connects on a V8 to the opposite valve cover and the hose goes to the air cleaner.On a I-6 the pcv is located toward the rear of the valve cover and return hose toward the front of the cover,but also returns to the air filter.This keeps the crankcase under a negitive pressure,thus less oil leaks.

                          Yea, I hate the carb I have. I can't remember the designation, but it's a univeral Holley 4 barrel. Runs like a bat outta hell on the road, absolutely sucks on a steep incline. The vacuum source is a big deal on the Holley's. Mine was hooked all wrong when I got. Don't understand that kinda thing, I read the manual and it was cake. You know what I mean, why wing it? The hard part was finding the manual and model of carb. I think I finally saved the PDF somewhere.

                            Did you look at the pic. I didn't see any fittings in the valve covers. Hey gnarly I'll post a pic when I find out what the wife did with the picture taker. Gotta pull 16hr days all next week. I post a pic as soon as I can. Really like my Edelbrock carb. Had enough for one night. Talk to ya later. Scott

                              Not picking a fight Redtail, really I'm not. I don't have a technical answer for your question. I'm not a mechanic, but I know from setting this thing up that the vacuum source is the carb. That port in the intake provides the vent for the crankcase. I wish I had a picture from when I took the intake off, but I don't. Sorry man.
