Hi all

Quick question of those if you running the breather off the rocker cover gauze canister to a catch tank, rather than via the carb, do you have a PCV valve fitted on that hose?

I don’t and wondered if I should!

Also I note the engine bay is grimey I take it that’s the but product of not piping back via the carb?


Thanks Phil

My answer; don't have a valve on either of mine. An original GTV8 didn't have one from scratch and my conversion doesn't.
When the conversion was running an Edelbrock I just piped a rocker breather into the air filter.

Thanks Allan I’ll leave it as it is, I might get the connection plate and breath it via the air filter see if it stays cleaner under the bonnet

Cheers Phil

Phil, if you pipe it inboard of the filter element you won't contaminate the that either. Or you could run the breathers to a catch tank in order to settle out the oil vapour, then to the filter.
This was when I was going through my catch tank, cold air feed, phase. he catch tank is on the N/S with a filter on top, which later was fed into the filter can. Then I took the tank off and fed directly into the can when I discovered there was never anything in the catch tank!!!!
