    Posted: Aug/11/2019 at 10:58am
I'd like to see if there's enough interest in the M/E Wagner adjustable PCV valve to do a
group buy with them. If we have at least 8 people buy one we all get 25% off, so they'd be $96.75 each.


Yes it's expensive for a PCV valve, but it's adjustable to each engine, and should be the last one you'll ever need. It's rebuildable, 100% made in the USA, and looks fancy too.

I know there are folks out there that don't see the need for PCV at all, so of course they can stop 
reading here. For the people who want to run a PCV valve and have modified their engine somewhat,
the stock PCV valves aren't going to do the job perfectly. Digging around through forums to find
different valves to try might get us somewhere, but it's time I'd rather spend elsewhere. These
guys have a solution that works.

Optimizing the PCV system can help:
 Reduce oil leaks
 Reduce oil dilution by blowby fuel vapor
 Keep crankcase cleaner
 Improve idle tuning characteristics
 Reduce oil burning at idle, cruise, and WOT

Please spend some time digging around on their website, definitely take a look at the Customer's Rides section to see some of the installs.

PM me if you like to get in on the group buy.

Ok, we're gaining some traction, we've got three people on the list now for the super-duper PCV valve.

We just need 5 more!

That brings us to 6 now, we're almost there!

The PCV valve is 3/4" at the base where it goes into the grommet, and our manifolds use a 1" hole. I found that Trans Dapt shows a 0.75x1.0 PCV grommet part number 9760, but I can't tell how much thickness it'll accept. That might be the best way to do it.

Alternatively ME Wagner offers an interesting 1/2" nipple x 3/4" adapter piece that let's you use the stock 1/2" grommet and then run a short length of 3/4" rubber hose from the adapter to the PCV valve. You can make it any height you want that way. They don't include those in the 25% off deal though.

Something like this:

We're still working toward placing this group buy, we've got 7 people now. Keep in mind that I'm not selling these, and I don't make any $$ by organizing the group buy other than to save $29 or so on the purchase price just like everyone else does. 

Once we have enough people M/E Wagner will give us an order code and we can place our orders, and once they receive at least 8 orders they'll start shipping them.

Anyone else interested?

Does the AMC v8 with the factory baffle have the at least 3/8 inch recommended clearance?

Yes - it's on the order of 2" from the PCV grommet to the stock intake oil baffle.

I tried the previously mentioned Trans-Dapt grommet, and the thickness of the aluminum on the Air Gap where it engages the groove in the grommet is just a little too thick for the groove. It'd work, but it's not perfect.

But I did find a 3/4" grommet that fits nicely into the Air Gap at Home Depot. It's in the electrical department near the crimp connectors, and you get 3 of them for $1.19.

Went to Home Depot today and the aisle helper and I could not find Tyco grommets. WE looked in the electrical Dept near the crimp connectors. He got on his hand-held store computer and the 3/4" grommets are in a large metal cabinet with drawers in the fastener aisle. Look for the drawer labelled grommets. The brand is EVERBILT ONE PER PACKAGE # 588 739. The groove in the grommet is ~1/8" and outside diameter 1-3/8"Curious about the groove width in the Tyco grommet. I ask because I have a  new AirGap intake and it was a bear getting the NAPA grommet to fit....doable but not ideal. Before I pull it out I'd like to know if the TYCO grommet groove width. Thanx.
The most powerful tool is the question.
