Default PCV Valve for a '64

The big three auto parts stores here (O's, A's and A's) didn't list the PCV valve for my '64 so I did a little research and found one that does.

Amazon says it doesn't fit either, but I just put it in and it works perfectly.

Rockauto has it for $4.30. It's not listed under 1964 Thunderbird either but is listed under 1963 which has the same PCV setup.

It goes in the pipe at the back of the intake. Here's the diagram.

Take the air cleaner off and you'll see it behind the carburetor. It is screwed into a fitting, and that fitting is on a bracket that is bolted to the top of the intake and holds it at about a 45 degree angle towards the passenger side. It accepts gasses from the large fitting near the bottom of the manifold and through a curved steel tube (item 6758 in John's diagram), which are sucked into the back of the carburetor spacer and burned along with the fuel.

txs, will have a look. my carbspacer is aftermarket ,so no fitting there.

I had to tear my edelb carb apart today as the fuel filter malfunctioned and filled it up with fine granulated rust.

The PCV valve was moved to the passenger side valve cover in 1965. You still need the fitting on the carb spacer.

Your Edelbrock carb has a PCV port so you don't need the port in the spacer.
