Recently I replaced my tired old Inline 6 cylinder in my 1963 C10 with a used 350 crate motor. The previous owner has put a fairly ‘large’ cam in it, and it has that aggresive ‘lopy’ idle that we all want. While it sounds great, cams like this create very low vacuum at idle, which introduce other problems.
Chances are that if you are reading this post, it is because you are having a hard time finding a PCV valve that will operate correctly with low manifold vacuum. Try using a standard PCV valve with low vacuum, and you can hear an annoying clicking or ticking noise. This is caused by the valve not fully opening as there is not enough vacuum to do so. This may create other problems as you may not be extracting all the crank case gasses building up in the engine, which the PCV was designed to do. While there are a few options out there to solve this problem, I was surprised I was never able to find a specific ‘high performance’ or aftermarket PCV valve for low manifold vacuum motors. Most people recommend getting a PCV valve from an early to mid 60’s high performance car, such as the corvette which came from the factory with low manifold vacuum.
Upon further research, I discovered that not many years ago, GM released a PCV valve … which isn’t really really a valve at all. It’s just the PCV housing, with all the guts removed and is hollow in side. The bottom side has a pin hole, much smaller than standard PCV valves. The GM part number for this PCV is 12572717, and you’ve probably seen this referenced all over the internet while doing your search. I went to my local Advanced Auto Parts store, and while they didn’t have the GM brand, they did have the exact same part made by a company called BWD, and it is part number PCV484. It cost me just under $8, and made a huge difference in my motor. Because the inlet hole is so small, it actually helped bump up my manifold vacuum, and now I feel safe that the crank case gas build up is being removed safely with out me having to worry about. It fits right into my Chevy Small Block 350 as any PCV would do.
Here are a couple more photos of this PCV valve
The turn signals and hazard lights quit working on my 1998 Dodge Viper recently. Following the directions in the service manual to diagnose the problem, I discovered it was the Turn Signal / Hazard Flasher module located where the fuse box is under the steering wheel. Unfortunately, you have to pull the whole dash panel off under the steering wheel to get to this module as it is not accessible from just removing the fuse box panel cover. Thankfully it’s only about 5 or 6 screws you have to remove and the whole dash panel comes off.
I looked around for a replacement Turn Signal / Hazard Flasher module, and all I could find were very expensive MOPAR / Chrysler replacements. The part number of the Chrysler Flasher Module is 56007098 and they range anywhere from $30 – $45 on eBay and other online sites. I figured there had to be a cheaper module available that was a reproduction brand from another company, after all I was certain this Flasher module would be used in other Chrysler & Dodge cars as well.
Sure enough after some searching by a determined employee at Advanced Auto Parts, we found a replacement module made by Novita (Part number EP27), and cost only $15.99. It is a 5 terminal, 11-15v DC flasher module. I just installed it an my turn signals are working once again on my Dodge Viper.

I purchased a World Class T5 transmission earlier this week for my 1963 Chevy C10. My other T5 had the main shaft bearings go so I decided to upgrade to a WC T5 instead of fixing the Non-WC T5. The new T5 needed the driven gear on the output shaft swapped so I could get the correct speedometer readings for my truck’s rear end gears and tire height.
After pulling the tail housing all apart, swapping the driven speedometer gear, and trying to put the tail housing back on, I was confronted with a problem that wouldn’t allow the tail housing to go all the way back on. This left about a 1/2 inch gap between the main housing of the T5 and the tail housing.
After nearly 8 hours fighting my T5 transmission tail housing, I finally figured out what was wrong. I found a thread on another site where a guy said he gave the fifth gear assembly a light smack towards the driver side of the transmission and it all popped into place.
I tried this but with no luck, and am not comfortable hitting on the transmission too hard even with a rubber mallet.
So I started playing with the shaft on the on the opposite side of 5th gear which connects to the 5th gear assembly, and discovered the shaft was pushed in towards the front of the transmission. This was causing the 5th gear assembly to lock into a funny position. I pulled back on shaft (pulling the shaft towards the rear of the transmission) and it all freed up.
Once I tried putting the tail housing back on everything went smooth!
Apparently it puts fifth gear into a weird position causing it to hit the side of the tail housing. This needs to be all freed up in order for everything to fall into place.
I hope this helps others with this problem who might find post in the future. There isn’t a lot of posts about it on the internet.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
