I just bought a 1982 Chevy c10 305 small block.
It had an oil leak so i began putting new valve cover gaskets, and then New Valve Covers(Edelbrock).
Because the covers were taller, I had to remove the EGR valve and bend a new fuel line.
There was a plate i instelled inside the valve cover where the PVC goes into? is this a problem?
I noticed the hose from the distributor rotor button(vacumm?) was not connected to anything.
I plan on putting a EGR blocker plate, but was told it wasn’t needed to run.
So now it starts up but will not stay running idle.
Do i need an EGR blocker to run?
IS that plate needed inside the Valve Cover?
Does the hose from the Distributor rotor need to be connected?
Help…first time post.
