Re: [T3] air distributor line??

[[[It's a big tube at the rear (rear is rear) end, but there is a rather 
tiny pinhole where it passes thru the front (front is front) cover, so it's 
really not all that much air. ]]]

That would make sense.........VW must of wanted a pipe that size just for 
show, eh?

So... I could still hookup my original "pcv" system if I had a way to allow 
fresh, filtered air into the crankcase...(remember I don't have heads with 
ports).........since I still have the '72 air cleaner with it's 2 extra 
outlet pipes in it (that would have connected to these head ports) 
.......would it be ok if I welded 2 pipes onto a set of valve covers and 
ran hose from here to the air cleaner for fresh air entry???
I know it sounds like alotta monkey-ing around in order to use the '72 
system, but in the back of my mind it seems like a better system to 
have........to have a system that draws air from the crankcase directly 
into the intake and burning the fumes seems better to me rather than having 
a system that has blow-by to pressurize the crankcase and force these fumes 
into the air cleaner only to have then pass over the throttle butterfly the 
into the air distributor............
seems like I'm splitting hairs?......but if I already have most of the '72 
system in place and can hook it up...why not?
