Yes, that will give you a functioning system. Make sure the PCV valve is correct for your engine and that the valve inside of it moves. When you shake it up and down you'll hear it move. The valve is controlled by a calibrated spring. Under high manifold vacuum the valve is partially closed, limiting the amount of extra air entering the manifold and reducing the lean condition. Under acceleration, when the manifold vacuum is low, the valve opens further, this is also when the most bypass fumes enter the crankcase. If the engine backfires the valve closes to prevent it from entering the crankcase.In essence, I want:
1. Driver's side PCV valve to PCV port on carb (which has given me problems, but I can revisit).
2. Passenger side breather replaced with hose to air cleaner.
That will give me a properly functioning PCV system, correct?
