    Default "Drilled & tapped my new 1

    "Drilled & tapped my new 1409 Edelbrock to accept PVC hose. Used a 17/64 drill bit & a 1/8 NPT tap. A very, very straightforward & simple procedure. I have tried to attach some pix that I hope will help others in the future. Hope they are readable."

    Click on his username and then his e-mail. You can then attach the file and send it. Otherwise you could try and shrink the photo down to the size of a postage stamp and upload it that way.

    I ask Edelbrock why the marine carb didn't have a port when the street carb does but he couldn't tell me other than there built to marine regs.

    You can use one of many free picture hosting sites available on the web. I use Picasa only because I am familiar with it. You can have private or public albums that you post the link on your message.

    Default "Yes it is... However, he said

    "Yes it is... However, he said PVC = Poly Vinyl Chloride... Personally I'd be leary of drilling holes and modifying a marine certified carb for warranty and insurance reasons. If I wanted crank venting in that scenario, I'd just clip the crank (or rocker cover) vent line(s) to the flame arrestor inlet."

    The old AFB's had the port but something has changed since then probably. I've seen arrestor's with 2 hose attachments for that reason I suppose.

    Default "Conqueror: Thanx for the kin

    "Conqueror: Thanx for the kind words... Were it not for the info that was available on this board, I would not have known exactly how to proceed... I think the 1409's are made lacking a PCV port because the hose/s are now attached to the flame arrestor...Don't have a clue as to the difference... Finished wiring the choke today... attached at the 12V side of the Ballast Resistor... Replaced defective, rotted wiring at the same time & the engine seems to start better & run much better on the hose... Could run differently under a load... Will post some pix of the final install later... Mike..."

    "To further confuse matters, my 260 HP 5.7L Merc w/2bbl has one of each... A hose to the carb base and one to the arrestor! I do believe the rationale for that setup is to allow under certain engine operating condition, i.e., idle or other low blowby situations, air flow INTO the hose at the arrestor, thru the engine and back out into the carb base, which is at a vacuum at idle.
    Under high blowby conditions, with low intake manifold vacuum, there is always a slight vacuum at the flame arrestor hose. One way or another... it still sucks :-)"

    "R.A.F. Check out the first pic on the above post. Mine has 2 hoses as you have described. 1 is from a breather attached to the port valve cover, going to the flame arrestor. The other is from the PCV valve located on the starboard valve cover. Mike."

    Default The hose to the flame arrestor

    The hose to the flame arrestor is for the air that's coming INTO the engine. The PCV hose takes the air OUT via suction.

    I too reused the old flame arrestors. Maybe we're related!

    My previuos post is in error... The PCV hose connected to the FRONT of the carb. attaches to the PCV valve located on the PORT valve cover... The hose connected to the flame arrester attaches to a breather located on the STARBOARD valve cover... Sorry for the mix-up...
