Seen this on ebay and would consider buying it just to be different but the cap does not look complete,I presume its for a truck but never seen one on any 216 or early 235 before.

The odd thing to me is the location of the hole in which it is located.

Did they make industrial engines?

Looks like that is a valve cover and remnants of the valve cover air cleaner found on a late 1942-45 Chevy G506 235 engines.

A similar concept valve cover mounted air cleaner was used on the 216 used in Canadian Military Pattern Chevrolets during WW2.

I did not know a PCV system was made that far back,since I want to install one and would like to have all those parts.

That [PCV] system in military trucks was actually a way for military trucks to "ford" creeks during WWII.

I cannot find the first patent, but Chevrolet/GMC were using PCVs in early Advance-Design/New Design (at least 1948) trucks (large trucks, at first).

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

I looked it over again and looks like that cap is not removable.
