PVC tube install in the case cover

So I got my new key made, I got my oil leak sealed with a new gasket installed with the copper pentex spray on the gasket and it seems to have worked fine but now its time to test it. I got everything put back together and realized I did not get the vent PVC tube in the case cover before putting the cover on the case and reinstalling the fuel pump, carbs, belt, etc... I want to know if I can safely hit the hole to put this tube back in blind without undoing everything? is it mounted even with the shaft for the pulley? Should I replace the O ring before I put the tube back to prevent leakage? I want a clean garage floor as I am putting a new paint job down before I bring this back and I want to make sure I don't create a new leak repairing the old one. Your thoughts?

I'm almost done. I just need...

Back apart..... new O-ring and there's a forked clamp and bolt that holds it in.

Yes I have the clamp off and wonder if I can get it to go in and then install the clamp.

Wouldn't hurt to try using 1/4" drive and swivels and tape thru a sparkplug hole in the shroud.... nothing to lose!

I think you are better served by removing the top shroud / fan.

Look at the hole in the shroud - it is not centered on the fan hub shaft.

Do not think there is room to get the hold down / bolt across to the housing. All you will do is drop it into the cylinder head.

Sometimes the slower way is faster. Bite the bullet and remove the shroud cover. Then the installation of the tube will take a couple minutes and you'll know it's right. If not, you might fill the area with blow by and have to take it apart anyway.

I love.. "not"... spell checkers. I fight mine all the time!

PVC = plastic
PCV + Crankcase vent.

I agree it's better to remove the fan shroud and fan to attach the PCV tube.

Yeah, PVC probably would not do too well in there on a hot engine day. I am going to go after work now and redo this correctly. Thanks.
