I have some procomp fab type valve covers that has no holes nor baffles for breathers and i need to get an evac system hooked up before i crank up my new engine. Any ideas or where to buy a baffle kit would be great.
Thanks

when I bought my tall ffr valve cover they had no baffles I made my own baffles for them with saome thin sheet metal and screwed them in .I don't know if the procomp has the 4 tits on both ends of the inside of the them or not but they do drill and tap them and make your own baffle in them.I loc-tited the screws so they wouldn't back out and fall in the the engine

Star Machine makes nice ones that are well suited for sheet metal covers and vacuum systems using a #12 fitting. Part number 06.11.001 . They are happy in the front vertical surface of the cover.
Moroso makes similar parts.
I also have Moroso billet bolt in breathers #68788 on one engine. Those are really nice for any application and you can just unscrew the top to add oil.

Yes. It has a perforated aluminum screen baffle and a foam biscuit on top of that.
I got a pair of them for my PME (Bill Price) covers about in 2001 when I was venting in to the header collectors, and still use them on the 514 with a vacuum pump. I think they will outlast me...

These are the same except that they have an 8 -an fitting;

Nice thing is you don't have to worry about any little screws falling into you motor, and all the connections have O-rings, so they don't leak.

Ok thanks again men. Do you have to have an evac system hooked up for the first start up and ring seating?

No
At least in my opinion....
I normally unhook the vacuum system during no load initial run in warm up,..,just to help look for general health.
