That bugged me last night.X2 manifold has a water jacket. If you look in the pic there is an inlet pipe on the right side also.
Normally there is a hockey stick style pipe from the pcv, straight down the drivers side of the engine
I had thoughts about the 179/149s of the time with closed PCV, (nah) and the breather tube which vented down to the atmosphere.
Also, optional power drum brakes hose fitted to the manifold ?? That would have been rare, but not impossible.
Handling and braking were not high on the Holden equipment list then. Interior comfort came with a Premier.
HKs came with optional versions of all three, depending on the depth of your pocket.
I test drove a HK with power drum brakes before I bought my HK. Dangerously horrible. The brakes were like a light switch, no progression .... on or off.
A little bit of pressure ........... nothing, then apply a bit more and one front wheel would lock depending on road surface, or if you were lucky both would lock at the same time giving you a pretence of having control.
