Panel,
i found this pic and it looks to go to the crank case vent. the other hose going to that same vent i routed to the breather along with the vents from each valve cover.

the other pic i am having a hard time visualizing where that is.

Sorry to ask so many stupid questions but did you do away with this metal cross over tube(yellow arrows)? That's basically what I have. Right now the intake is off for cleaning up some other tubes not used and I'd like to get rid of this metal cross over tube if all I need to do is run them to my breather boxes.

It looks like Britain just 'T''s his valve covers to his breather box also and then one goes maybe to the ground ?

Not much of an update but got my turbo drain back from my Dad. I like it. Clean and simple. Now I can run an AN style off of it. Used to be a straight flared pipe coming off of it.

Got a couple more bits back from my miracle worker :wink:

Oil feed from block to turbo:

Coolant on block cut down and re-positioned for heater core delete(for now)

Image

And another coolant mod on the back of the block (cut/shortened re-positioned etc)

Got my two into one 1 3/4" merge collector back from my Day for Father's Day 8) Added the in/out water fittings from Earls.(Coast Industrial) and the oil drain is on there now too.

Got some smaller little things taken care of. I saw a lot of guys flipping their coolant manifolds around so the outlet faces the front of the vehicle. At first I wasn't even going to take the intake off but seeing as though it won't be on the road this summer I think this will give it a cleaner look and more of a direct shot at the radiator. It's not really flipped but re-located.

Original way(below)

Image

Aftermarket sender location on left 1/8NPT and the OEM coolant location on the right.

Image

This hole will be blocked off (welded in the below pic)

Image

I also was trying to get an AN fitting from my bulkhead to go from 3/8 to 5/16 for the fuel supply line and Coast Ind. was coming up empty and online so I cut off the original hard line and will get a 3/8 steel fitting tiged on there. This actually in the end is a nicer way for the fuel layout than I was going for. Originally it was coming in right near the return line above the intake manifold and kinda looked ugly.

Got a little cleanup work done on the alternator mount. There sure was some unused castings on this thing that were ugly and needed attention.

I've been collecting some more goodies:

These are some aluminum block off plates so I can relocated the 'IN' side I'll go with one big 'in' rather than two 'ins'.

Image

K & N from GCVW this summer

Image

Image

VSS Vehicle Speed Sensor from Amazon

Image

Throttle cable stop. The OEM one looked bad and I only needed the one hole
