Where to find a black oil fill tube
« on: February 03, 2014, 10:16:48 PM »
I need a black oil fill tube for a '67  327/210 hp, without the threaded hole for the pcv valve.  Issue I am facing is that I have an original AC Delco push-in breather cap, so I need the filler tube that allows a push in breather, not the screw on type.  Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Do you have a photo of the one you need?

I was going to bid, but could not see the top of it to see if it was the twist on type.   I thought the original 67 that did not have the PCV valve up front on the filler tube should have a push in type filler tube. Still looking....

Congratulations!  After seeing the one in the auction on eBay, I remembered I had something similar on one of the intake manifolds I pulled off Camaros in the good old days.  I took a couple of iPhone photos this afternoon.  Sorry about the shadows, it's sunny out here in California!  Warm too!   ;)

Is the fill tube with the return spring tab proper for a 1967?  Or di the 1967 use a smooth tube without the return spring provision?

Looking at the AIM it appears a smooth, non-tabbed tube would be correct

Anyone know what the correct application is for the oil fill tube pictured in reply #6.  It is on a '67/68 Z28 intake manifold and I know that is not correct.

I think that Intake could possibly be an L79 Intake, and for certain applications would have had that Oil Fill tube.

I believe the Camaro had a smooth tube, and has been stated without the extra "step".
   Here is a link for the one pictured in reply #6;

Nope, it's definitely a Winters' 1967-68 Z/28 intake manifold (casting number 3917610).
