OK! Your answer is totally a non-answer racefan966. When I said everywhere, did you think I just meant the parts store down on the corner? As for the hose suggestion, I have a feeling that you are not familiar at all with the Escort (no need to rebute, I don't care). If you knew what you were talking about, you would know that the PCV, actually, Oil Separator Hose, Is not a hose at all but rather a metal insulated tube with a rubber fitting at each end! Wanna take a guess why they insulate the tube? That's correct! Because it spans the valve cover! So are you still suggesting that I retrofit a hunk of hose to the elbow which is not the part connected to the actual pcv bye the way, it is connected to the intake manifold! So I take this oil resistant hose and lay it across my screaming hot valve cover? Is that what your saying? Just set it and forget it? Or wait. Set it and wait for the smoke to start billowing out from under the hood! I'll be sure to carry a pack of hot dogs and buns and a couple of sticks wherever I go, cause I never like to let a good fire go to waste! And which help line is this supposed PCV Elbow available?
Bye the way, I did go to 2 local NAPA stores and the only thing they had to say was good luck with that!
As for the second part of the question. Oh wait, did you read that? Anyway, that's pretty much a no-brainer, what I was actually looking for (if you understood the context of the latter part of the letter) were possible suggestions, as to where to locate hard to get parts for Ford Escorts, so I'm guessing that you either don't have a clue or just didn't get that far in my question!
Bye the way, did you actually look at the detailed photograph that I posted?
I would have to say that I wouild like my donation back please!
