The exhaust emission characteristics of the 'Brisko Heavy Duty PCV Valve Adaptation' was studied as a part of an evaluation of retro-fit devices. The Brisko device replaced the stock PCV valve on a 1970 Chevrolet equipped with a 350 CID, 300 hp, high compression engine and automatic transmission. The following tests were performed: six baseline tests during which the vehicle was in stock condition, and five device tests during which the vehicle was equipped with the Brisko device. All tests were performed according to the Federal test procedures for 1972 and later testing, using a constant volume sampling technique. The results, which are tabulated, led to the following conclusions: (1) emission reductions were marginal and would not by themselves warrant installation of the device; (2) only a marginal fuel saving was measured.
