Look at page 29-01-4 in the Gen 6 maintenance manual section under emissions. It shows a drawing of the EGR valve on a 460 engine. It is the round metal diaphragm toward the back of the engine underneath the carb mounting plate. There should be a vacuum line that runs to the EGR valve.
He did mention a delete plate or egr plate. I'll look at what you referenced. The vent on the valve cover not being hooked up to the air cleaner couldn't contribute to the detonation could it?

I don't mean to be so ignorant. Thanks for all the help.
