    Pipe with one way valve? :S

    First off, thanks for the dumpvalve help if your reading this .

    well down to the point, tonight i did the bypassing of the rear bcs and vac box, (amazing!) but whilst doing this i snapped a one way valve.

    On the rocker cover to the left thereare two pipes coming off, i know the 1st one if the oil breather, but the second on has a one way valve and it looks like its going to the throttle body.

    My question is, does this valve have to be a special one from vx, or can i buy, say a windscreen washerone way valve, will it do the same job?

    Cheers

    Best bet to use the vx one but any one way valve would do, I like to use aquarium air pump non return valves, they seem to work better than the halfords washer crap
