Early birthday gift showed up . 9 inch ends for my 8.8 . Eventually will be done with 33 spline axles and a tru trac so there is no worry of leaving off the brake when I want to get after it .

With that much extension hanging off the end of the crank, it’s a wonder that that sht don’t snap off

Blower life ! Lol

the 8 inch pulley exaggerates it for sure but it is double key wayed as far as that aspect is concerned .

Need new clamps for my upper hose
Install the distributor
Plug wires
Transmission fluid
Power steering fluid
Antifreeze and it’s back together

also found that the Glenn’s tank has a small micro pin hole fuel leakthat apparently seeps down from the feed and drips in the gas tank cover and out the small hole in the cover . I’ll have to address that down the road .

That really is a nice looking engine! I think I have the same valve covers on my car. Only difference is mine look like :poo:lol! I'll have to pull them and clean them up at some point.

I have one carb style cover with a fitting welded in thebreather hole . One efi with a fitting on the front . Both go to a catch can in my bumper . No pcv . So this comes off and fills through there . Just like an oil fill hole
I was not questioning the way it is or why you did it, I understand why a forced induction system needs a different crank case evac set up.
I was remembering someone that was removing the pcv on a na engine, mostly because we have a sbc here at the shop that was rebuilt and installed without a pcv system and does not have a lot of miles on it. It leaks from every gasket. Honestly looks like it has a bagillion miles on it.

If it’s leaking from every gasket then the crank case pressure is not getting out of the engine and maybe they need a vac pump .
