So i've done quite a few searches and feel like I have a good idea how to re route the vac lines for the PCV but have a few questions lingering.
My apologies if this is rudimentary, but I just finished a 3 month project on a Subaru BRAT so I've got the subie system on the brain which is probably the cause of my confusion.
Anyways, as you can see in the photos:
1. PCV is on Pass side. It should be on the drivers side to my knowledge, as the rotation of the crank acts as a "fan" of sorts and creates slight vacuum in the pass. valve cover anyways. The breather (inlet) should be on the pass side... correct?
2. The PCV is connected to the Vacuum port on the rear of the Manifold (Edelbrock 2101) via the orange nipple. Wouldnt this create too much vacuum and force oil directly into the manifold and perhaps cause a backfire through the carb? I believe this should be connected to the port on the front (dead center) of the edelbrock carb. via the large port covered by the black nipple (after the swap to the pass side)... correct?
3. Brake booster / T fitting - I believe this is hooked up correctly, but maybe it would benefit from using the port on the intake instead?
4. Vac Advance - Shouldnt this be on the front, passenger side of the carb instead of the drivers side? Not sure if it matters, but I believe it could if the carb is setup like the Weber on my subie.
5. What fluid / How the hell is oil in my carb top if theres no PCV plumbing hooked to the air cleaner? My only guess was that the PCV was blowing oil into the intake, causing a carb backfire, and spraying/seeping oil through any oriface it can find.. you can clearly see the pool of oil in the pic of the carb top (it only seems to be on the rear 2 barrels).
Another radical thought (which I believe is impossible, but may give you a laugh) is some idiot (drunk) tow truck driver neighbor of mine INSISTED that it could be brake fluid.... i know this has to be b/s as its a closed hydraulic system and if I was leaking, it surely wouldnt be from there, and the brakes would not function as normal... but still, pretty funny.
Any suggestions / tips / links would be much appreciated.
Thanks & keep it cool
