How do I connect the pcv on a 1965 327?
The engine has a bolted in, conical shaped fitting with a small pipe off the side, near the distributor which I understand is part of the crancase ventilation, but there is nothing else fitted to it. I would like to know what has to be fitted and where it connects, please.

Aftermarket kits had you plug the road draft tube, install under carb plate for vacuum and install oilfill cap with nipple that went to air cleaner for fresh air, among others that weren't as good. Had a '56 Buick that drilled into intake for vacuum, got shavings in comb chamber. Being a '65, road draft tube OK if you drive it enuff to pull out condensation.

Assuming you have a carby that will accept a PVC tube, I bought type 3 PCV valve, 2 foot of suitable tubing, and a leaf spring grommet measuring 1.22inch / 31mm across, the grommet fitted perfectly into the down draft hole that the pipe is removed from, the PCV valve fits tightly into grommet, tube connects PCV valve to carby. cut tube to best length
I did this on an 1960 283 and an 1964 327, I have attached a photo for reference.
