Planning on doing it like the photo. Basic breather on the passenger side of the truck. Do I need a baffle under the breather? I kinda didn't think I would because air should be sucking in there.

Probably not. Be sure your grommet is positioned between the cylinders so there won't be any contact with the rocker arms as they move. Those shorty valve covers are a pretty close fit to the rockers. On the mid-1950's Oldsmobile engines, we had to put spacers under the valve covers or dimple the covers over each rocker arm when running a high lift Isky cam to keep the rockers from hitting the covers!

Thanks Jerry, Yep I've got a small block on a stand in my office. Looks like right in line with the screws is a good spot.

Just Mark I suppose you know that powerful vacuum can suck the gaskets out or colapse the oil pan and valve covers ?? You might cheat like GMC did and screw a PCV valve in an intake port runner into the valley below the carb hidden,sneaky !!!
