283 Oil Filler Tube

Whats the best solution for the Oil filler tube hole in the front of older engines intake 283/327. I'm installing a Edelbrock rpm maniford, shall I Plug it with a Freeze plug or just cover it with the intake? If I dont cover it will it lead to blowby?

I think that oil filler tube actually is pressed into the intake so you can just swap your new intake on. If your intake already has a hole for oil fill tube just plug it with a 1 1/2" cup plug.
But now youll have to find some newer valve covers with an oil fill.

The correct solution

Use the correct intake allowing for the oil fill tube. I have never heard of any way around the tube hole?? Isn't it also the crankcase vent??

It is a crankcase vent, but the valve covers were not vented. Put later covers on with a filler, vent and PCV valve and you are all set.
If you put a PCV valve on, you can also plug the blowby tube (pre 65)

There is a sealed pipe that was used on the 302 DZ engines. I've plugged many manifolds with freeze plugs and they work just fine.
