Question What do I do with this PCV hole now?

Ran a line from each valve cover to a oil catch can. So what do I do with this PCV hole? I'm pretty sure these two things were in there at one point and time but how do I plug it up?

Thanks,
Ben

You can buy plugs for them, unfortunately the names of companies that sell them are eluding me right now. I always just ran a PVC in the hole, even if it was non functioning(not needed).

I still run my PCV. I tested it under positive pressure, nothing gets by it. I also run a -10 line from each valve cover to a catch can.

Yeah I ran -12 to my catch can, little over kill I think but it sounded good at the time. I was thinking of puting a new screen in, pcv valve and cap it off.

If you remember what the name of the company is let me know. Thanks all.

take out the screen, and cut the bottom off the PCV valve and take out the check valve. now put a piece of 3/8" rubber hose on it and snake it down the fire wall and forget about it. i ran it that way for years, no issues

I kept the pcv valve but attached an air filter on top of it. So I have three filters all together. So far so good.

Any pics of the filter? I just unhooked the hose running to the valve and left it all by its lownesome self.

Ended up buying a new PCV, installed it and capped it off. Should work.

measure the hole then go buy a freeze plug to fit; did it to mine, but I do not remember the plug size needed.
