It should go from the valve cover PCV valve to you air cleaner. Your
air cleaner should have a pipe protruding from the bottom.

Re: Re: Air breather???

No pipe from the bottom of the air cleaner. I don't have a PCV valve
either. Just a hose pluged with a bolt. Some one must have changed out
air cleaners in the past. What is the correct set up for a 66? What
does the PCV look like anyway?

You should be able to find a solid rubber plug for your valve cover
at a local parts store if you want to eliminate it. The PCV is just
like any PCV valve you might find at a parts store for a Triumph or
similar smaller engine. I am pretty certain they are the same.

I thought that the PCV wasn't used until the very late cars. Anyone??

I just won an air cleaner on eBay and I believe it has the pipe on
it. I don't need that style, so if ya wanna trade?

I'd like to keep my car as original as possable. If it should indeed
have a PCV I'm up for that trade John. It will be a few weeks before I
get home so You may have to wait for a pic. Mine is in need of paint...

Hi,
There's no PCV on Amphi's, just the hose from the valve cover to the
pipe on the underside of the air cleaner.

Looks like (by what John said) the PCV is not used. That makes that
part easy. Once I get the air cleaner from the guy I bought it from,
I'll let you know. Now that I think about it, I am not 100% sure it
has the pipe. But if it indeed does, it's yours. I have months before
I need to use it for the next project, so no hurry. It needs paint
too, so NYA NYA NYA! ;)

Look up item #1858495086 on eBay for a pic of mine.
