Nice installation 4Jaw...I *** -u-me that you have open breather caps on the rocker covers?

How difficult is it to replace when needed? I am not trying to be being smart or holier than thou, but why didn't you insert it in a rubber grommet or use a threaded valve? Is it baffled from the rocker valley?

that ceramic carb looks trick, but appears a little large for a 400.

K, the threaded PCV valves here cost $10.00 and the type I installed cost $1.25. There is a baffle installed from below but I am bead blasting the manifold so it has been removed, There was no change when I installled it so I don't think it was absolutely necessary. It gets less splash in the rocker valley than in the rocker covers anyway, seems the rockers have a tendency to aerosolize the oil and combined with the squirt from the pushrods it was far worse mounting the PCV in the rocker covers.

Silicone rubber stays put after the first install and the new PCV just pushes into place, I thought about installing an o-ring but it works fine like this and never comes out unless you pull it out.

The 10 000 cfm carb is just the right size when using supercooled fuel...see Matty's posting for more info. We are developing many secret things here in the "lab" so I must be careful not to disclose them all. :p

One question. I looks like you drilled the hole with the manifold in place. Where did the filings go?

Make it 2. Does the clear tubing hold up under heat and oil?

Looks like a pretty slick system to me.

The manifold was removed for the machining. Vinyl tubing lasts quite nicely, most snowmobiles use them for fuel line and is very durable. The line shown in the pics is not reinforced (bought some today), you must use reinforced hose or it will collapse under full manifold vacuum. I use two rocker covers with individual breathers packed with scotchbrite to ventilate the engine. No oily residue on the rockers anymore.

CALLING ALL CARS"" CALLING ALL CARS""proceed to 4 jaws,HE"S been on the rob!
That 10,000 cfm ceramic burretor, was developed for the TY-PHOO TEA COMPANY of Great Britain for their TT racing team,this pic your showing has been doctored as the carb originally comprised of a six pack"=6t cups +saucers 1 tpot,the tpot later doubled as windscreen washer bottle!
Also the 6pack ceramic carb was 1,000000 cfm.
The original fuel was common Tea,which ran well but only when hot"not like you yanks make it.at least the canadians know how to make tea.How come yo got these "secret plans"
C.F.M. was understood to stand for cuppers for miles,In 1938 there was the other version "chromed swan necked handle 4 pot" this was cheaper to produce because coffee was not as popular in the U.K. so there was an abundance of coffee pots! Also i beleive the spouts acted as good pcv valves!! But due to the second world war breaking out + all the food being shipped in convoys to the U.K. the coffee pots were used as depth charges to foil the German U.Boats.THE CSNH4P as it was codenamed was "sunk" WHICH still leaves the question 4jaws "were"d you get hold of de plans"

The engine is actually for sale but it's original purpose was a front/mid engine late 80's RX7 or Ford Probe whichever came first. I haven't been able to get together enough cash to build a rod so out the door it goes. Maybe in 5 years the kids will be older and I can afford to sink some cash into a car, or I manage to get my hands on a Formula Vee car for cheap. I can't get road racing out of my mind...it's better than sex.

Sold the nine inch disc axle and most of the other toys already. I will write up an ad for the classified section tonight.

As to where those plans came from, you can't make me talk...I have to protect my sources. OK OK I'll tell you what happened...I met Benny Hill and he gave me the secret plans after smuggling them out of the UK in the bra of one of his "assistant"s". Those documents had a lovely aroma. <img src="graemlins/drool.gif" border="0" alt="[drool]" />
