Can I run it for 10-15 minutes without the PCV hose hooked up to the carb, since I haven't added the baffle to the valve cover?

Those numbers look good. DO NOT leave the vacuum line off of the carb unless to cap off the carb fitting. It will run too lean.

Cool. Just didn't want the PCV hose sucking more oil than what's already in there....

Maybe I'll fix the baffle issue first and then run it..

Will the oil residue on the exhaust valve eventually burn off or is there an easier way to cleaning it?

In this 'blown' Corvette, it took 30 minutes to finally clear up. This was at 3000 RPM.

Here is another thought I have, to see if it is the PCV causing the problem. Cap off the fitting on the carb, and run it at 3000 RPM for at least 15 minutes, if the oil smoke does not start to diminish, it will be the valve seal, or valve guide in #2 cylinder. Particularly the exhaust valve.

Did any of the plugs have oil on them?

No, under a half hour. I am thinking the 'blower' had a lot to do with spreading the oil around every cylinder, not just one, like JMARK posted on #11.

With his post, I wonder how far wide spread this problem is.

Lius, I am hoping, this is a 'cut and dry' simple fix for you. Good Luck.

based in JMARKS post #11, i wonder where the flaw is. His valve covers had baffles yet he was having similar problems. Could the flaw be in the quadrajet ? intake manifold ?...or a combination of both......

it would be interesting to see what the common denominator is....

His "flaw" was the pcv valve sitting right on top of the 'baffle',(I said this word was used enough)which was causing a suction, like a vacuum cleaner.

He cured his problem, with 2 o'rings on the valve it's self.

There I feel better now that I got your name spelled right.

There is NO OTHER forum on the internet, that can even come close to HOTRODDERS, in knowledge from experience. Soak it up, and "enjoy the ride". We are all here to help, and advise you, with any problem you come across, with your 'ride'.

Hi Luis; Sounds like things are looking up for you, and wifey has one less pair of shoes in that closet. Glad to hear that comp.readings were fairly well balanced across the board. If you're gonna' run it with PCV not recycling into manifold, you could just run a draft tube from it for temporary usage, and if "stationary", a coffee can could catch the drippings to give you an idea of how much is getting thru PCV valve. (Repeat test after baffle installed, for comparison). Anyways, glad it's coming along. -Jim

you're absolutely right about his flaw. It was late and I wasn't thinking clearly. I over analized JMARKs problem....
