Edelbrock Intake on a 304 V8

It's been about 8 months since I pulled the factory intake to replace it with an Edelbrock Intake. Please remind me of the following:

1. At the rear of the intake, close to fire wall behind the carb, there is a hole about 3/4" to 1" that is not threaded - what connects here, was it something for the emmissions/smog - if so, any recommendations on how to seal it off?

2. What hose and where does the other end of the hose go from the small hole of the water outlet on the front of the intake? Maybe the water pump or one side of the heater core at the fire wall?

The hole at the back of the intake is for the PCV valve. You want to use this.

That small hose coming off the thermostat housing is called the bypass hose. The hose you have to buy is molded and will fit perfectly. It attaches to the water pump.


Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

I used a ford small block grommet and pcv from nappa. Works great. The grommet was a tight fit.

Just get a factory replacement at a local auto parts store, which will fit the Edelbrock manifold.
