negative.  I don't know what stock looks like but this car has been
modified some with the polution plumbing removed or blocked off and a
single HIF44 carb. The PCV valve is a small somewhat cylindrical
thing.  If my back lets me, I'm going to yank it off tomorrow and soak
it in gas for a while.

Only a little puff when starting the car. Mainly it is leaking from
the engine but only when the engine gets hot.  I have to drive about
10 miles before it heats up enough to start serious leaking.  If I
drive 10 miles and stop to idle it will leave a puddle about the size
of a dinner plate in 2 minutes.
