    swampy; I remember looking at that adjustable PCV in other threads previously - it's a pretty cool bit of gear, along with the price tag to match. Since I only see 6" of idle vacuum, I wouldn't be...

    Very kind of you Geoff. I’m pretty keen to try a GM HEI with MVA - experimenting is the only way to learn right.

    Lowering the float levels is certainly worth trying - I might start there and see if it makes any difference.

    swampy - it's hard to detect smoke on startup with mine as I run dump pipes under the rear of the car. I might re-install my tail-pipes for a while so I can monitor that more closely.

    The set of 4 sold for $1,040 on ebay, so more than happy with that. There's a lot more out there advertised at much higher prices. These 'old car parts' prices continue to amaze me.
