PCV placement on New GM Goodwrench using vintage equipment

I own a GM Goodwrench 350 motor using an Edelbrock intake with an oil filler tube and breather type oil filler cap, Edelbrock carb, original valve covers and air cleaner from a 1963 Impala. The motor is already in my car.My question is how do I run my pcv valve? I do not want to drill into my valve covers.

Can I run a pcv valve threaded into my oil filler tube and run that into my carb? Will this provide enough ventilation without causing engine problems? Or do I have to do something else to help it breathe. Thanks for any advice or help is greatly appreciated

vac connection

the edel carbs have a large fitting on the center front and one in the back.. i use the front for the valve cover and the rear fr the trans.. looking at the front of carb the right small connection is for the dizzy and blank off the left one...

but he wants to run 1963 covers and those dont have pcv holes in them

and the block doesnt have road draft tube

so hmmm

im not sure what he can do then

if i were him and wanted to retain 60s covers but have pcv then id go for a set of 1968 1969 1970 covers
