So, when I first got my '55 Chevy, I was stupid and bought some street rod parts that I now regret. I have since seen the error of my ways (I didn't know about the HAMB back then!), and I want to make my engine compartment fit the rest of the car. Here's a current pic of the car: It has bit of a 60's vibe to it, and the interior matches pretty well IMHO. The engine compartment just looks like crap, though. I had purchased some ball-milled valve covers, a way-too-tall K & N filter, and put these stupid braided hose covers on everything. Since the picture below, I have painted the engine black, put some new plug wires on, and gotten rid of all the braided hoses. Here's a photo of what it looked like BEFORE I did all that: The only thing standing in my way now is the air cleaner and the valve covers. I have a set of original valve covers on the way, they look like this: I will be painting them black with a silver script to match the motor. I'll deal with the air cleaner later, my question is about breathing. My SBC has (and needs) a PCV in one valve cover and a breather in the other. I think that's pretty well been established as the best way to run things on SBC's without the draft tube in the block or the oil filler tube in the manifold. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) My first idea is to weld a small pipe (hidden hear the firewall) to each valve cover and connect them with a hose, and maybe connecting the PCV and breather to this. I would try to keep it all out of site, and I would have to find a way to baffle the valve covers. Has this been done, and does anyone have any pics of something like this? Thanks!
