Did you check the adsorption cannister and connecting hoses?  The cannister 
can get clogged up and is rather expensive (I thought) to replace.  I know I 
have seen instructions somewhere for opening them up emptying them and 
refilling with aquarium charcoal from the pet store.

Thanks to Bill Schooler I see how the system works now.  There is no PCV
valve in '73 rather the system employs a fixed orifice ventilation

So, ho can this system malfunction?  Seems fool proof.  I guess the take off
at the tapped cover can somehow get clogged but that seems unlikely and mine
appears to be clear.  Am I missing something?
