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.
I did extensive research on the Standard Ignition #V112 PCV Valve (Mfg number PCV valve for 327 Chevrolet) and found out it has 3/8" barb and a 1/2" barb with the flow from 1/2" to 3/8". This won't work with the Mr. Gasket #2063 Breather Cap which has a 3/8" barb. If you were to install it with the proper hoses, the flow would be going the wrong way.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
