intake leak HELLLLLLP!

Hey guys, the car is a mother mopar special 73 roadrunner with a 440 big block. OK, I appreciate the insights so far on the oil under my intake in the valley..I went top the autostore and bought another breather cap and put it on the cover that had a regular cap...I now have two breathers. I do see the nipple under the carb for a pvc hose but there isnt a spot on the mopar covers to put a pvc!? Anyways, I cleaned up the oil under the intake and now im gonna get it hot and see if If I leak....if so I guess i will take off the manifold,again and put a brand new valley pan and permatex the bolts like that hotrodder said to do. thanks. If this doesnt work I think I will sell the car and buy a skate board. HMM..85.00 to fill up vs 5mph...hmmmm

You should be able to get a rubber grommet that reduces the size of the breather hole in the valve cover to fit the PCV valve.
