    Any off the shelf hoses that have the bend to the pcv valve that the group knows of?

    I need a replacement for my missing one. Anyone?

    There are universal hoses with a bend in them. Comes with a 90 and an 'S' bend at some fractional ID - not cheap. I can't find a listing right now, but someone must have a link. One alternative is to buy bulk hose and put an elbow in the middle. I have used the elbows for PEX tubing and brass barbed elbows, both available at the home center. Not sure what the hose diameter should be, but if it's larger than 3/8" your parts store may suggest heater hose as a substitute. Not good - when exposed to gas or oil, that will swell and come apart. RockAuto sells odd-sized fuel hose (like 1/2") if you can find no source locally. 1/2" is also the right size from the air cleaner to the filler cap.

    Or maybe your FLAPS will let you look at what they have in stock. Looking at pictures of PCV hoses, there are a lot that appear to contain an elbow you could use. Or try the pick-and-pull, if not for the part then to find a usable application.

    don't know if parts houses would have a listing for it or not.
