I am missing my pcv valve. Didn't have one when I bought it. Can anyone explain where you connect both ends.
I've looked online for a new pcv valve and i see a couple different looking ones. If anyone has a picture of what theirs looks like that would be very helpful.
Thank you.

Not sure which one is correct.

Also: I believe this fits on the rocker arm cover??

You’ll only have the larger line connected on the valve—the one with two connectors has the smaller end plugged. The valve fits in a grommet on the passenger side valve cover and the hose connected to it gets connected the the back of the carburetor.

Ensure that the fresh air side of the PCV system is there and functional too.

One valve cover gets the PCV valve... the opposite valve cover should have a fitting in a grommet with a hose that runs to the air cleaner.

This allows fresh air into the engine as the PCV valve pulls vapors from the crankcase.
