Default 1966 Mustang 200 I6 coupe heater and PCV hose questions

Since there are little to no manuals on early mustangs that cover the 200cu in I6 I am trying to piece mine together from various engine photos of posted pics.

Since the large air cleaner covers a large portion of the motor I need help trying to figure the layout of the heater hoses and the hose that runs from the PCV valve on the valve cover.

I replaced the heater core and ran two new hoses that will obviously run to the water pump. However in many of the photos there does not seem to be a standard as far as the routing. Some even show something that looks like a valve or a connection that is under the air cleaner between the carb and the valve cover. Is it a problem to just run the hoses stright from the heater core to the water pump or am I missing anything?

For the hose that runs from the PCV valve on the valve cover to the carb I cannot tell if there is an adaptor that fits on the carb that hose connects to. The connection at the carb is condierably larger than the PCV valve so please let me know if there is a fitting I might be missing.

If anyone has detailed photos without the air cleaner or tech articales that can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Forgot to state it is a 3 speed manual if that makes any diffrence.

Thanks
James

Hi James,

Your best bet, would be to get a copy of the "Mustang Illustrated Catalog". This book covers 1965 through 73 with hundreds of detailed illustrations of just about every component system in the mustang. Locate and attend car shows in your area. Maybe, join should a local mustang club. You will be exposed to a wealth of information aout your ride.
Also, this link may help "http://wiki.answers.com/Q/FAQ/2306"
Good Luck!

Thanks for the info on the material Ken. I hope to run into someone around the Fayetteville / Ft Bragg NC area that can help out as I get closer to getting the motor put in.

Here are some pictures of how the hoses are ran on my car. I don't know if it is factory routing or not. The first picture shows the pcv hose coming out of the spacer below the carburetor. The second picture shows the heater hose coming from the fire wall to the same spacer below the carburetor. The third picture (hard to see, hose is burried under fuel and vacuum line) shows the other heater hose connecting to a pipe at the front of the engine. (The pipe comes from the water pump)

Hope this helps!

Thanks for taking the time and posting the pics it really helped out. I can see where my confusion was at. The carb spacer that is on my motor does not have that section running through it so I guess I will be running the heater hoses straight to the water pump.
