Please look at my earlier post with the pictures of my Quadrajet Carb and tell me if there is a place to plug in the PCV Hose.

I think it will work......Any comments or suggestions?
I found where you plug in the PCV on the front of the carb at the bottom (same size as PCV Hose).

Couple of questions:

1. Look at the PCV Valve and it appears to have two different size hoses. I'm assuming this is a one way valve and the smaller end would go towards the breather (picture enclosed). Use a short hose to the PCV and then a larger hose from the other end of the PCV to the Carb base.

2. Should I leave the breathers in the valve covers blocked off? I took it out and drove it 40 miles stop and go with the breathers blocked off and it cut down on the fumes inside the car by 90%. Still get a whiff once in awhile sitting at a red light. I pulled off the oil filler tube breather cap and could see a very small amount of smoke.

Appreciate all feedback.
