Yes the filler cap slides over and has the built in breather capacity. It works fine....but somebody added the old Edelbrock Valve Covers with the breathers on the covers. I'm just going to stuff something in them where the old deteoriated filters were and put the tops back on the breathers.

I like the look of the valve covers with the breathers but don't like the little bit of blowby fumes coming into the passenger compartment. I can see from other posts and looking at original 327 c.i. engines on ebay Camaros that it will work fine with the new slip on breather cap on the oil fill tube just like they came from the factory. They didn't use breathers on the valve covers back in 1967.
