Question valve cover breathers

What do you guys have for valve cover breathers? my valve covers have an odd looking hose that comes off the cover and just goes to no where. its attached with a floppy 90 degree pipe then a rubber tube. it works. but looks very crappy. I do have 2 other pairs of valve covers but i was just wondering what everyone else had. any way for something sleeker?

one side should be simply a breather the other side should have a pcv valve and a hose going to either the carb or vaccum source on your intake.

Yes i do remember seeing that. does yours also have a hose that just goes out to no where or is it a little cleaner?

your hose shouldn't go to nowhere, it should be attached to a vacuum source on your carb or intake. Blow-by gases from the combustion cycle that enter the crank case are routed through this hose and back into the intake cycle where they are burned up.
Your other valve cover should have a cleaner or vent on it so air can enter.

My '66' has the "closed system", the incoming air to the drivers side breather (with snout) has a hose going to a snout at the back of the air cleaner. Passenger side has the EGR and "S" hose going to the carb. It's a CA car, don't know if it got adapted to the other states at later dates.

The hose should go to a vacuum source at the carb. If you look hard enough you should be able to find a breather that has the look you want. I bought my air cleaner from one source, but found breather covers that matched.
