    Show Off Your Six Banger

    Inspired by Kooky's recent thread on his old 194 L6, show off your inline 6! Or four if you still got it!

    Mine is all stock except HEI. Need to re-route / re-do the fuel and vacuum lines.

    Jrinaman, if you dont mind me asking, what is that air cleaner housing off of? I have a 250 with dual carbs and offy intake. I would love to feed the carbs some cooler air like you have.

    it is from a Datsun 240-280z. I cut out holes for the carbs from sheet metal and folded the sides up and welded it on and removed most of the original bottom. I also formed a piece between rad and doghouse and cut out for hose.

    if the offy cover is to pricey, you could get one off of a mercruiser 6 cylinder.

    Cool

    I noticed a small detail on Ron's picture.
    The hose from his oil fill cap is running to a port in the intake manifold.
    The stock steel valve cover ran a breather hose to the extension tube between the air cleaner and the carb.
    I never felt my stock rebuilt six vented properly on the 6,3 speed 4:10 set up.
    The 6 more than likely needed a stronger pull of air to help it vent the way that engine needed.
    This port looks like it would provide that...

    The draft through the crankcase is controlled by the PCV valve not it's location. It is essentially a metered vacuum leak. Different PCV valves will have different flow rates. The picture shown has the PCV valve mounted in the (normally) oil filler/ breather cap location. The picture doesn't show the other end of the valve cover but with that air cleaner, I imagine there's a vented breather cap. So as long as you have manifold vacuum to the valve cover and a vent tube or breather on the other end, you're good.
