Wave 156 20v JTD

Hi guys,

When I first got my Alfa 156 20v jtd I decided to fit a larger aftermarket vapour trap/oil catch tank. I connected both the crankcase breather pipe and cam cover breather pipe to a single silicone pipe using the original T, instead of going into the original vapour trap...anyway the silicone pipe then goes to one side of the new catch tank and another pipe comes out of the other side and leads to my custom silicone intake pipe on my induction kit. To cut a long story short it occurred to me I've removed my pcv valve from the breather system and I have no clue where it used to be or whether my engine will be sucking in oil now that I'm running without one?!

Does anybody have a picture of the original breather pipes going to the original oil trap at the back of the engine so I can see where the pcv valve used to be? I've decided I want to route the pipes back to the vapour trap and then to my new one as well to get double the vapour separating (in theory) but I can't remember how the pipes were on the old vapour trap.

I've searched the forum but can't find any pics of the back of the engine...

Hope someone can help
