Breather setup?


I need help finding a way to vent my 392 HEMI. I have the billet valley pan that has oil caps on either end. My valve covers are not an option. Does anyone have a setup that works that they'd be willing to share? Thanks!

Try to replicate the oil fill cap/breather & tube that came on the engine where you have the front oil cap, that's how to get air in. Then use a grommet & PVC valve where the rear oil cap is. Or are you tlking a drag motor?

No, this is a street/strip truck. I'll see if I can come up with something like you suggest. I was thinking about a remote catch can/breather setup.

To breath properly you need a way to get fresh air in & suck out the old. The OEM set up the fill cap has a breather to let air in, Then replace the puke tube (draft tube) with a PCV set up. I'm sure your billet one looks better, but.....

I think I'll plumb a barb in the front of the VP and run an inline PCV to the front port on the carb. then I'll plumb a fitting into the rear of the pan and run that to a remote breather. Think that would work?
