    Not bragging (it's not something to brag about)... it's just a fact I don't try to deny... I should have had a governor installed on my cars for about the first 40 yrs of my driving life... (but that would have been no fun). I've thought of writing a book about my 'various conversations' with LEO's after getting pulled over!

    I always enjoyed how they lied when I took them to court.

    Don't rightly recall, been some time since installed the valve covers. Don't believe there is a baffle. May have to pull the PCV valve at some point and see how much oil film accumulation there is.

    Any idea how one can add a baffle to prevent that situation. Not sure the 64 block has provisions for a road draft tube.

    All small journal 67 and older blocks can run a road draft tube, starting in 63 many had pcv valve nipples instead of tubes.

    "M/E WAGNER", on your pc, explains it all. i wish i knew how to put pictures up here i`d show you mine. anyway, on the inside of the cover, m/t covers have 2 pilot holes . i drilled and tapped them, like 6 or 8/32 threaded holes. put the cover back on without a gasket, with plumbers putty on the valve cover, pulled the coil wire, turned the engine over 2 times or so, pulled the cover. i was afraid of the baffle hitting the roller rockers. anyway, measuered the thickness of the putty, used two thick washers, cut a rectangle out of a piece of sheet metal, drilled and installed with blue loctite. pm me your address and i get copies made of the pics and send them. and then, i found a "raised" pcv grommet. so the pcv is out of the cover about a half inch. i`ll get the part number for ya later today.
