    Yep, PCV alright. Is there enough material to put a brass barb fitting in there or not?

    I did the same damn thing on my b18 LS Teg, I went to orelies and peiced together something to work with a vacuume assortment, a pcv boot (Same isle) and the original hoses.. i ran it through the same hole in the intake.. its a bitch to get on there but it stays on there.. I think i might have wrapped the pcv valve with electrical tape a few times around to get it to fit tight in there .. worked fine.. Ghetto though.. LOL but really, whos gonna notice it.. cant even see it..

    ok well im going to run a catch can with it if i do hook it backup,im pretty sure i can piece something together,,but heres another question,,theres a hose going from the motor into the box,thn a hose coming out of the box to the mani..
    can i eliminate the box and just run a hose straight from the back of the motor to the manifold?

    1st pic enlarge it, you can see how I have it on top, bottom's like i said, lil electrical tape cause the elbo pcv boot at the parts store is a tad to loose feeling.. didnt want that bitch coming out.. I Didnt put the pcv in the boot then tape it.. thats to ghetto for even my standards lol reuse the plug that goes from the hose (Bottom side of pcv) into the box.. I think i used all the same hoses with little effort..

    Bout to sell this car as soon as this 91CRX si makes its way down to where I am.. LS Block sittin in the garage from my last TEG.. this one just needs TOOO Much and its a f'n AUTO.. Sellin it for $1500.. has a valve sounding clatter but its not in the head cause i just put it on there.. Probally a bearing or wrist pin shot.. Dont feel like dumping ANY Money into that car.. If it was only a 5spd.. blahh.. Had a 5spd, got hit my a suburban.. SUCK..

    Im pretty sure that if you take it off there is a big hole where the box goes into the block.

    I wouldnt JB it, high-temp RTV or the like would be the best IMO.

    Dont think that would hold, maybe some of that radiator patch shit that comes in a tube, most of them work on plastic, for high temp, and rock hard.. or get dreative with a soldering iron and melt away.. shit if all else fails, thread the hold in the box run a fitting on there and to from there.. lol lotta approaches to it
    JB Weld makes that radiator putty also.. I didnt use that one though cause the one next to it on the shelf had more types of plastics listed.. and I didnt feel like wondering (Is it abs plastic or blahh plastic..) probally neigther, then again they might just be to cheap to list all the plastics it would bond and just named 2.. who knows..
    dude people make bongs out of fruit... coke bottles, pvc pipes, you name it its been done.. If they can do that high, and make it work.. this shouldnt be to hard lol

    On my engine, I was able to take the whole barb out of the black box. If that's possible, just get a brass one.

    If it's not possible, try taking it off (the whole box) and reaming it to fit a new brass barb in there for a replacement; then when you forget again (from what I understand it's pretty common), it won't get broken. :D

    talkin bout the puddy to patch a crack in a plastic radiator its bout the sizeof a middle finder in a plastic tube, pull a peice off and role if in a ball to mix the outer shell into the middle.. Its for ALOT Of stuff radiators I patched my g/f radiator with it.. she got backed into, in her cavileer, and it was just enough of a hit it broke the Plastic nipple off the top right mount. like a garden hoze spraying. I used that, to put the nipple on and seal it.. still rock hard and working..
