Run a hose from the valve cover to this can, then another hose from the can to the pcv valve. The idea is to trap the oil in the can and preventing it from being sucked in the intake. This is a trick we use on turbo cars to prevent oil ingestion. As far as rocker covers, they will all fit until the late 80s when GM came out with the hold down bolts that went through the top of the cover. I actually machined some of the tooling that went into making the progressive die that stamped these "new" rocker covers back in the 80's.
