Default 62 fuelie question

I have a question, I have a 62 fuelie, I was wondering if you can re route the vent tube back to the oil fill tube? so it doesn't blow oil under the car? Just wondering. Has anyone tried this?

you can use a PCV and route the 'vapors' from where the road draft tube hole is to the plenum. here is the pic of the California setup,

Sending the crankcase vapors into the oil fill tube is not really what you want to do....one of the points of the road draft tube (or even more modern PCV systems) are to scavenge corrosive (and EXplosive!) vapors out of the crankcase. The road draft tube vents the vapors to the atmosphere; the PCV (option RPO-242 on our cars) reburns the vapors by sucking them into the carb base...

I don't know where you put the PCV valve on a fuelie but you will want one of these adapter for the hose from the road draft hole to the PCV valve....Paragon has them.

If you have a LOT of smoke and blowby coming out of the draft tube, maybe you oughta' invest in a set of pistons rings.

Otherwise, Wm 62 has you on the right track.

Thank You Bill,
This is exactly what i'll do. Not that I have a lot of blow by, just don't like the hose just hanging there.

the California system is a bit 'ugly'... if you are good at tubing bending you can probably bend up a tube that will go between the distributor and the plenum and then use rubber hose on either end to the adapter shown in Frank's pic and to the plenum/PCV end. i bent up something similar to connect to the PCV i used when i was using LT1 valve covers. i believe it can be done.

Tom's is the cleanest way to do it.. my suggestion is best if you are going to draw from a PCV installed in a valve cover.
