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?
