how about just hooking that up to the valve cover, like it should be, there should be a hose going from the valve cover to the air cleaner. the barb on the valve cover is right below it

I found something at HD for that plug, echo that my connection to the valve cover is located towards the firewall side of the air cleaner. Sorry, don’t have a pic.

The standard fix for this is a 4 pack of 1" black crutch tips sold at Walmart for $3. You'll have 3 spares that way. Not as hillbilly as it sounds.
They are definitely the thickest option. And with three spares, you can help out the next guy who asks, and maybe make a new friend. :idea:

The stub is actually the emissions air pump intake...they started showing up on air cleaners about 68 or so. I plugged mine with a tubing cap....not even sure where I found it....but it fits LOL.

Have used these. Come in various sizes. I got mine from PepBoys but they are available at other places also.
Probably over kill for that spot but will last forever..
