[quote]the antifreee was low in my radiator, <hr></blockquote>
Like milner said, if there was any air pockets in the system they would have worked their way out causing the level to drop. Top off the system and then keep an eye on it topping off the reservoir only. Do not keep opening the radiator cap, kep the system sealed. If the antifreeze in the reservoir keeps emptying then you may have a problem. If you have no external leaks and she's not smoking with that nasty sweet smell of a bad head gasket you're probably ok.
[quote]now i put a pcv from the vacume port on the carb to the valve cover, and eliminated my breather <hr></blockquote>
For the pcv system to work correctly you should have a pcv in one valve cover connected to a constant vacuum source and a breather in the other valve cover so you don't create a vacuum in the crankcase. The breather in the other valve cover is to allow fresh air to be drawn into the crankcase by the vacuum applied to it by the pcv.
