    Hello Fella
    Been awhile
    Finally got back to the game. My 1973 Scamp is up and did a "break-in". Everything is looking good, but I need help
    #1 - where are these 2 tube connect to?
    #2 - Searched everywhere, but could not find the right Grommet for the valve cover? Please provide part number, link if possible.

    Thank you FABO
    Simon

    Mancinni Racing has a kit for your valve covers to install the pcv valve, you will have to ask if they have a block off for one of the holes on that valve cover. Breather on one side, pcv valve on the other side. Not sure about the two small hoses at the firewall, they would probably go to a vacum canister . They are for the heater controls?

    And don't forget the baffles under the breather and pcv if you haven't installed them already.

      Good point Mike. Forgot that. Has it rained up Waterloo way since the CFalls race?

        Your 73 and later a/c system has one vacuum line going to the water control valve and the other going to a vacuum reservoir (looks like a plastic ball).
