70 Wagoneer pcv location ??

Hello, after reading the service manual and looking across the internet, I cannot seem to figure out where the pcv valve is located. I do have the original air cleaner and it seems to have a hole in the side of it where I would think a pcv filter would be. A check of Autozone, shows an inline type pcv valve. Maybe that is correct, but where does it connect to ? Does all of this make sense ? Anyone got any pics of 68-71 Buick 350 engine location ???



On another note, the local machine shop about an hour away quoted 7000-9000 to rebuild a Buick 350....after the engine is removed....either that is way high or I am just way out of touch with reality anymore.



Thanks guys. Any pics are helpful.

I'm not sure where it is on a Buick. If you don't get a response here, suggest you post on one of the Buick forums.

They don't want your business. I would expect about $2000 exchange if the builder has a core. Pretty sure BJ's distributes S&J reman engines? Jasper is another well-known source. This would be a factory-built reman; I don't think a local shop can match the reman price. You'll pay a premium to rebuild your engine locally, but not 4x a reman. Check with your local Napa.

Look at pictures on the internet. "Buick 350 engine." It appears there's a grommet at the back of the intake manifold. This would be consistent with other V8s. The hose from the air cleaner to the valve cover is the air intake for the crankcase. The PCV valve plugs into the grommet and regulates the crankcase exhaust. Typically it connects to manifold vacuum at the base of the carburetor.

Tim is 100% correct- BJ's stocks remanufactured Buick 350s from S&J.

https://www.bjsoffroad.com/Remanufac...71_p_1906.html

With all the bells and whistles you can have one tailgate delivered to you for just under $4k ($3986). Plus, BJ's gives a discount to board members, plus you know it'll be rebuilt right!

What are the odds there is a Jeep guy that has a 1970 wagoneer and a Commander ?? Mine is a 2010 Hemi. The wife drives the 2016 75th Anniversary JKU.

I think I found it. It is coming out of the back of the carburetor. In this picture shows it about the 12 o'clock area. Thanks guys for the help. I am going to have to find some young flexible kid to pull that out.

I put a piece of plywood over the grille and fender and lay on it.
