Engine vent in XR 1967 falcon engine

Hi people,
I put this post up before in another part of the forum and got one response, which was great, but im still a little bit stumped..

I want to know if the engine vent tube on the front passenger side of the old (really old) non cross flow falcon engines can be blocked up or if it can be fitted with a PCV type valve and plumbed back into the engine.

The previous response I got was to just plug it up and put a vent on the top of the rocca cover as the hot dirty air was no good for an engine...

What did ford do on the newer non cross flow engines with pollution control etc? My 250 2V rocca cover has a rubber gromet for a PCV valve, so I assume that they must have plugged the engine vent hole in the later engines and plumbed the vent in the roccer cover back into the intake.

If anyone has a photograph of their engine bay that shows the front passenger side of their engines, That would be a starting point for me :)

Wanted: 9in diff to suit my XP utility
