    What is the proper location for a PCV valve on a Rover 3.5 V8 ? I have a '85 110 and there are vent lines going to engine ,carb and valve covers but I don't see any PVC valves are they necessary ?

    The early non federalized Rover V8s.....with twin carbs did not have PCVs but had charcole cannisters and flame traps in the venting systems.

    Is there anything negitive about not having one if it is plumbed into the carb ? I have replaced the stock duel carbs with a single 500 cfm Edelbrock

    You should be able to run the valve cover breather into the carb base or put a PCV inline on the hose to the base. I know there is a port for a large hose most run to the brake booster but your intake should have the one way valve al ready set up for a power break booster. Stay away from running it into the air cleaner/filter.....it will get messy and if you ever back fire.....oil.....spark....fire!
