283 vs 327

I was told that the oil spout was on the front of the 327 Chevy engine, at the front of the intake manifold. I have a 1965 Impala SS with a 327, however the intake has been changed and now has a Edelbrock. There is no oil spout. The oil is put in the valve cover. Is this correct?

Like you say, its an aftermarket manifold. As long as you have a breather on the valve cover, to replace the one that was on the fiiler spout, you will be fine.

Does it now have a PCV ?

Not that I see. The other valve cover has a hole and there is a hose that runs from it to the Edelbrock carburator.

That is probably your PCV. It should provide enough venting.
If you oil cap is vented, even better.

For what it's worth...If you have a '65 327 block, there should be a breather pipe coming off the block near the distributor and extending down the back of the block. If you have that tube & a hose from the valve cover to the carb, you shouldn't need any other venting.

If you look at my attached phot you will see. The front tubel is gone. The filler cap is on the right Valve cover and the re is another hose that connects to the other valve cover that goes to the carb.
