No PCV means a return to a "vented" configuration which requires at least two 
1/2 " ports to effectively relieve crankcase gasses/pressure and most 
especially when 
driven like you stole it.

Normally an upper port from the valve cover and a lower port via the "can" on 
timing cover. For those timing covers with no can, the old mech. fuel pump port 
will suffice. Actually, all three is a better bet.... with the fuel pump port 
being a mighty
1 incher.

I'd go with the early, simple tried and true "flying saucer" PCV 
set-up.....cheap, effective.....make you happy long time. 

Incidentally, if your 45 DCOE isn't returning decent mileage/fuel economy at 70 
mph cruise on flat highway, even with ribcase ratios and 3.9, it probably needs 

Mine was great on economy (AND performance) utilized as above on my PO'd VP3 
cammed super-tuned (90 dynoed HP @ the wheels) '74 Spridget I used for 
commuting back and forth from Stamford to NY Metro airports prior to retirement 
from the increasingly  "unfriendly" skies. :)
