"The PCV was spliced into that hose and tucked under the manifold the hose going under seems OK I just caped the port on the carb to get it to the right Idle when the new PCV comes I should be able to cut that hose back a little and make…"
"Steve, you are correct. The PCV hose connects to a breather tube under the intake manifold, towards the rear of the engine. To access, you will probably have to remove the intake. You may want to replace the hose at this point since you are…"
"OK I found it was a cracked hose going to the PCV valve and a bad PCV plugged the port on the carb now my question is where does the PCV go it appears to be a hose that disappears under the intake . also can some one point me to…"
"Steve, these cars can be frustrating for sure! For now, you can disconnect the throttle linkage entirely in order to idle the engine, set the timing, adjust the carb etc. It sounds like someone may have switched the linkage on you or it…"

I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…
