Correct PCV set up and parts
#11
I have not received my valve covers. However the listing for the stated they do have baffles. I plan to utilize the stock air cleaner and to route the pcv and breather as close to stock as I can. With the chrome valve covers I'm hoping to use a chrome stock style oil cap that attaches to the pcv valve. I believe this style cap is removed by turning it approximately a quarter of a turn.
I'd like to get a plastic ninety degree fitting for the passenger side valve cover so I can route the hose to the air cleaner. This fitting and the correct grommets I need to find.

I checked and the plastic fitting on the passenger valve cover is actually a 45 degree. I have a 90 is you want it.

Hey that's a really nice looking Mach you got, love the black /argent color combo!
Anyway, this is what I did with the PVC. I just ran it directly from the manifold instead of coming from the carb to the drivers side valve cover. And I have the stock hose set up to the air cleaner. The reason I ran the PCV hose the way I did was cause I just recently changed my carb from a Street Avenger to a Quick Fuel, and the vacuum outlet on the new carb is different. So I had an unused port on the front of my intake manifold to use, and it just kinda fit better. 
So my set up is, I have a 72 Q Code, C6 3.50 Trutrac, with a Blue Thunder intake manifold, Quick Fuel 735 HR carb, aftermarket Ford Racing aluminum valve covers and stock air cleaner. The valve covers are a push in type instead of twist in, so that's why I just ran the PCV right into the grommet in the valve cover. All the vacuum connections are stock except for the PCV. Here's so pics. hope this helps.
