It was typically on the left side valve cover for sb engines.

Hi MO,
I don't see how the nut tightens down in your photo.
Do you have some 'mixed' parts?
Perhaps something like this is more typical.

Hi J,
In that case I can't help.
I'm only really familiar with the original type belts... not any aftermarket.

Is it possible they've been retracted all the way and are still on the reels mounted on the top of each wheel well?

There is a pull down switch below the steering column that overrides the vacuum controls for the headlight and MAY open the doors.

Hi MAC,
"How is the actuator stem attached to the flapper inside?"
I don't know.

A very tough one to access!!
Good Luck....

Hi John,
The purpose of the oil baffle is to allow just crankcase air to be pulled into the pcv valve....it prevents oil from entering the valve.

I'd be looking at the suspension bushings rather than the body mount bushings.
