If I installed a breather in each valve cover, should I use a sealed oil filler cap instead of the original vented cap/breather arrangement? That way, the fresh air would only come through the valve covers.

I would also install the HH PCV kit into the original valley cover

If you install the HH PVC setup you shouldn't "need" breathers in the valve covers, however as Skip says the wouldn't hurt. The whole idea would be to duplicate a modern PVC system yes, I believe you would want a sealed oil filler cap. Adding breathers to the hemi in my 32 is one of the things I intend to do when I get time. Good angled ones are a tad pricy so I'll wait till I have the extra cash. I did use a standard style PVC system on the 331 I put in my truck along with breathers.

Maybe I missed it but here I am on page 4 and have yet to see a T-Bucket with a Hemi?

So, to scratch the itch, I surfed and found these.....

Here is one, added the blower 'cause the hemi didn't have enough HP :


And a T Roadster:

Two ways to do the PVC thing

There's the HH setup with a breather in one cover and a bung in the other. Very effective but not very nostalgic looking.

The other way is to put nostalgic breathers on the valve covers and install the PCV valve (via a short hose) into the rear of the valley cover or into a bung in the oil filler tube. In both cases of this method, the open end of the breather tube MUST be plugged/capped off in order to force the inlet air to go through the two breathers.

One thing you need to consider doing when you use the valley cover PCV location is to incorporate some sort of a baffle to prevent the pCV valve from sucking oil out of the engine. I simply sectioned the bottom half of the stock valley cover pieces and put it right back on the engine under the O'Brien Truckers valley cover.

This is exactly what I'm thinking about - thanks John I wonder what he's using for a tranny.

I also found a few supercharged t bucket hemi pics. Way too much power. You would need to be very cautious on any throttle input - especially on a corner. That would be like driving on ice ALL the time.

I have a couple old Offy breathers packed in my stuff out in CA, but they are the tall straight ones.

These Moon breathers would look better than my Offy's mounted on the top of the orig steel valve covers

PCV setup and breather pics

Sectioned valley cover bottom and O'Brien Truckers top

Donovan covers with breathers

OBT valve covers with Offenhauser breathers on the front. There's a rag stuffed down the oil filler tube to block it off. The baffles at the bottom of the tube prevent the rag from going all the way down. Makes for a convenient plac to store my dipstick wiper.

love the way your modified intake looks,, i was lucky to find a factory iron intake before offy started reproducing there old 4bbl for the dodge hemi,, i was lucky to have saved and old adapter plate,,,all i had to do was drill out the pre stamped holes that matched the old wcfb pattern in my adapter plate,,i wasnt concerened about the ports not lining up properly,,the 500 cfm afb is already to large for a 214 cii motor,,but works fine good power and mileage in a full fendered street rod,, nice topic you guys have here

oh man! my very first car i ever bought! about 1973 i spied an unfinished, (No upholstry) t bucket with a for sale sign on it. 392 hemi. had that stupid push button trans and cheater slicks. i had to have it! he took payments, and i finally paid it off, all $900 of it!!! i got it to look pretty ******, got those big valve covers chromed, dark blue pickup body (rattle canned), with white side exit headers (write me if you have it). i never did get any uphostry in it (another $300) and the car couldnt get out of it's own way tho, due to being stock and having that crappy trans! at the time a dodge 4 speed was about $450, half the price i paid for the car, but still, at that time a Chrysler 4speed for sale, just did not exist. only ticket i ever got was for not having fenders draggin main. i dont know why either, but that car and being 19 and 20 i still couldn't get laid. i really really hated that automatic. kept me from being able to burn rubber. i believe me, IT COULD NOT BURN RUBBER! (not like those slicks helped any).

The cast iron push button torqueflight was a great trans. Not as light as the 727 or 904s but the internals were pretty much the same. Sounds like yours needed a serious rebuild. He11, the '64 273 Barracuda I owned in '67 had that trans and it could light up the tires.... well tire... it didn't have a posi, pretty much anytime I wanted.

I quit going the year I blew the tire on the way home from Louisville. I was back in Emmaus the weekend before Macungie picking the car up to haul it back to my friend's body shop.

I'd already become disenchanted with the new WOTSRA event management and their revamping of the parking layout anyway and when the tire let go, it was a convenient way for me to end my streak and I haven't been back since.

It's kind of like the Ty-Rods Old Timers Reunion. That event used to be the place to be on the second Monday in September. If you didn't put your event application in the mail the same day you recieved it, you didn't make the cut.
Now, it's just like Macungie. Neither event sells out through pre-registration but they both had waiting lists before one individual took over the duties of the committee.

Both are little more than weekly cruise nights, now.

Engine placement

Centerline, on your '32, does the engine bellhousing enter the cabin area?

I have an extended bell block & I'm wondering if that's going to be an issue.

I'd like to have the block bell flush with the firewall for maximum foot room.

I would need to place the engine forward more - like this pic below



See where the bell is here?
