PCV - Otto Parts 140 Air Cleaners

Received a PM request for a picture of the PCV tube on my 140.

Could not figure out how to attach a picture to a PM reply. All my pictures are on my desktop computer.

Thanks for sharing; it also provides a good look at your non-progressive secondary setup!

That's a nice installation.
I did one recently where I drilled a hole in the left side base and installed a grommet like what's in a stock air cleaner housing. I used two 110 or 95 style tubes joined in the middle with a hose. One half had the end going to the crankcase and the branch with the orifice and some additional length. The other half had the 90 degrees to the air cleaner and some length. Sorry I don't take pictures very often.
Yours looks better but I think you have more riser above the carburetor to work with than what I remember.

The work was done by my Corvair mechanic at the time (1984).

Since the hose to the air cleaner is slip on, I assume he used two of the sections that go in the base of the air cleaner.

I have zero welding, braising, soldering skills.
