i have the same problem, i built a 383 chev with early corvette valve covers ( no provision for oil or breathers ) and an old nascar style single 4bbl cross ram manifold ( only markings on it are SY1, smokey yunich?? ) i dont want to cut the vintage valve covers and there is no place on the manifold to drill for the old style oil fill tube. i am thinking about boring a hole at the rear verticle side of the block just above the bellhousing mount and fabing up an oil fill tube/ breather with a 90 begree angle at the bottom to insert in the hole. the hole in the block will go into the lifter valley. anybody see a problem with that solution???
