Remote breather/oil fill, any ideas?
I am building a new engine for my '36 Ford (SBC) and I would like to have clean (No Breather/pcv valve), vintage valve covers. I am going to use a Barry Grant Old School Six Shooter intake manifold that has no provisions for an oil fill nor a place to drill for one as the early Chevys had.
Do any of you have any experience with a remote breather/oil fll?
I have an extra polished aluminum power steering reservoir with an O-ringed top and a fitting on the bottom to supply fluid to the pump. I am considering using this for an oil fill by installing a fitting on the oil pan and run a braided hose to the reservoir to be used as a vent/oil fill. This could be mounted on the firewall or inner fender panel. This would also be the fresh air source for the PCV system as well as a place to add oil.
The engine PCV valve could be put any place that is exposed to crankcase pressure on the top side of the engine or manifold and connected to a vacuum source.
These are my preliminary thoughts on this...anyone have a better idea?
