    Valve cover breathers and steam ports?

    Wow, I see you ran a carb too! How does it run compared to FI? My valve covers are already black anodized. I was thinking about drilling them and using an -8an fitting for a fuel tank that has teflon washers rather than weld. Do I really need a baffle? Thanks for your help by the way! Steve

    Valve cover breathers and steam ports?

    I knew a mechanic about 45 minutes from my house who lived for these cars. A real old school Porsche mechanic. He was able to tune mine better than new. The cars were screamers! So fun to drive! Easy to work on too! I remember dropping the engine in about 45 minutes.

    Valve cover breathers and steam ports?

    I have owned about 1(0) 914'6's Several that I converted from 4's and a couple factory. I even owned a 7000 original mile 914/6gt It was a BLAST! I owned two that had SBC's also. It was amazing how well the engine fit back there and that the car actually felt well balanced. They (sbc...

    Valve cover breathers and steam ports?

    Hi Cam, Thank you so much for the response. I actually am running a custom SBC with an alien intake. I'm learning that I need to do a lot more research before taking any action. I never imagined I would have to drill my own valve covers for breathers (catch cans) or PCV's. I thought when...

    Valve cover breathers and steam ports?

    I was watching some videos and the builder was talking about "steam ports" from the high point of either the radiator or his intake? I'm new to small blocks.

    Valve cover breathers and steam ports?

    I know this is probably a dumb question... But, I don't have any breather ports on my valve covers. Do I need them? I'm running a SBC. I also don't know where/how to plumb the steam ports either? I've never worked on a SBC before so I'm really trying to understand the basics. Sorry for asking...

    Residual Valve Recommendations?

    Hi Scott, I ended up writing him. He sent me a diagram for plumbing the pump. I still have questions, but he didn't really seem willing to help beyond the diagram. I'll do as much as I can and then get some pictures and post them on the forum. I'm sure someone can help. Thank you for...

    Thank you! I've visited Allan 3 times and have been speaking to Joel alot! I've been reading the build logs and studying everything. You gave me some sound advice. I want more of a street car than anything. I have my engine and a Ricardo trans. I'm not a track guy. I want a nice car with...

    Inertia switch and rollover valve?

    I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but I haven't seen much talk about an inertia switch. I have one in my Daytona. I assume I should have one for my SLC? Has anyone posted the wiring for it? Is the wiring different because of the inifinity system? And... What about a rollover valve for the...
