304 V-8 Intake Upgrade

Changing out the stock intake manifold on a '78 CJ7 304 V-8 with a new Edelbrock Aluminum one. Any suggestions or part numbers on how to change out the Oil Fill Tube/Nipple. The old one on the cast iron manifold won't come off and I'm not sure if it would fit the aluminum amnifold anyway. The cap on it also had some "blow by." How to Plumb this thing out and can the parts be found and where?

if you really work it back and forth it should slide out

Does it just press in and will it seal up with the Edelbrock aluminum one?

Mine swapped out when I went to Edel. Intake. Fit just a hair loose so I put some silicone around it and slid it in.

If you bend it or damage it getting it out you can get replacements from Bulltear.
