Hey Guys for those running the normal Header E-Vac system..I am looking at making it look a little better. Are there any of the 1 way valves for the header that is setup for an AN- fitting?
Also what bulkhead type of fitting for the valve covers? thanks

I always used used chrysler type breathers but you will have to smear some silicone on the joint cause they will leak oil on the valve covers and used GM type air pump valves.
You want to make it look better??? Get a vacuum pump from GZ =; =;

Before I changed to a vacuum pump, I ran a set of Shogun bolt-on breathers that cam with an adapter that converted the header tube to AN-8. It looks like they are still available at www.shogunindustries.com.

We go to Napa and get the mopar breathers each year. this year we got some braided clear hose from Lowes. It looks good.

I just run mopar style breathers and air pump check valves at the headers. I will be going to a vacuum pump as soon as the budget allows though.

The Shogun breathers are no longer available. I ordered a set earlier this year and it took them over two weeks to tell me that they had been discontinued. They said there was no demand for them when I finally got an answer. Up to that point, they were telling me some parts were on backorder...........
