My engine didn't come with breather tubes in the heads
so I decided to make some in the valve covers. I choose
to do this because I didn't want to drill the heads while
the engine was assembled.

I bought a stainless steel 1/2" x 1/2" fitting.

And cut off the threaded part..

Then I sanded the bottom on my belt sander. I used the rounded part of the sander to create a semi-rouned
bottom so it would fit better against the valve cover..

Some rough layout of where the fitting will go.

I drilled a hole in the valve cover and used a screw to hold the fitting in place..

I bought this setup from HomeDepot.

This is my first ever attempt at brazing. I was very happy with the way it came out.

A fizzy picture after it was painted, sorry..

Here is a picture of it on the engine.

And a picture of it going through the tins.
