Other PCV locations???

That should do it, but I know I will have a smoke show when it starts because of all that oil my blower sucked into the cylinders. Wish me luck!!
I've been thinking about my pcv problem. I have custom polished low profile aluminum valve covers that I don't want to discard. My options are: 1) buy valve cover spacers that would raise my covers 1 1/4" higher and run a baffle and PVC 2) since my electric fuel pump is in the rear of the car, I could place a screw in PCV valve into the engine fuel pump block off plate and run a hose to the carb base "easy and cheap" 3) install an oil catch can that I can make out of an air compressor filter or just purchase a fancy aluminum oil catch can "lotsa work". What do you guys think/prefer ??
