Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

I knew about "the same block for all!" company edict which makes sense except for the different block identification marks. Now that oil pump doesn't look familiar. If I use the Merc oil pan is it...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

Hey V8C...

Sorry for the slow reply. As stated the engine is a C8BA but it's an interesting engine. When I bought the engine the seller was throwing in the Fenton intakewith three 97s and two...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

I'm just getting into a C8BA using the newer Fenton intake. However, I don't like the looks of the road draft tube so is there a way to hook up a PCV valve and not use the road draft tube?

Re: Intake Valve Oil Seals

Re: Intake Valve Oil Seals

I took a part a C8BA and a C0BA and neither had them even though I think they were supposed to. And the C0BA had been rebuilt.
