Put the pcv on the cover that has a baffle under the hole. Use the other for your breather and oil fill spot.

|RWENUTS||No. You need the pcv on one cover and a breather on the other cover.|

Thanks everyone for the help.

The stock setup has a PCV valve in a grommet in the driver's side valve cover, and there is a large diameter (3/8"?) rubber line running over the the carburetor. This is where is is sucking crankcase vapor into the carb base and then into the cylinder. As someone else mentioned, adding this extra air source may make your carb go leaner.
On the passenger side you can use a vented cap in the valve cover or a rubber line running up to the air cleaner filter area (this is the stock arrangement). This is where ambient air is sucked into the crankcase, so you just need a relatively clean air path. The stock setup uses a rough mesh filter on the air cleaner fitting to prevent sucking in too much dirt.

PCV Valve setup
Any auto parts store has the PCV valve. You would need the rubber grommet the fits the valve cover hole and some 3/8 vacuum hose.

PCV Valve setup
I have an 82 GMC Sierra with a built 350, on my valves covers one side has a breather cap, and the other side has a push in style oil fill cap.
My breather cap is starting to go bad and it letting some oil come up out of it, I would like to go ahead and switch it over to pcv valve. What all do I need to do this?
I found this pcv valve.

But, is there other parts I will need to get it all set up?
