Please, please please pretty please, give me a photo of your PCV valve and description of how it's hooked up, and anything that might be related (breather on the other side, etc). I'm pretty sure mine is missing and hacked, and after buying all the parts I could I don't think I have everything.
Ok, got mine figured out. Nothing was hacked or deleted. It was at the rear of the engine, passenger side, with a single fat hose going to it from the front of the carb, between the transmission modulator vacuum nipple and the A.I.R. pump pipe fitting. The elbow and hose coming from the valve cover is the other end of the system, which inhales air for the PCV system; the PCV valve is where it exhales into the carburetor. I'm not sure why a tee and smaller vacuum hose is expected to be used.
The OEM GM-published service manual I ordered came in. If you need anything from it let me know, but some stuff will differ by year and make. I didn't find the PCV valve well documented, which is amazing considering the incredible detail about everything else...but I had it figured out about an hour before the manual arrived anyway.I highly recommend getting on eBay and ordering yours.

- I have never before had such a good experience with eBay. You'll need the 1983 Oldsmobile chassis manual and the separate body manual. For $25 I got the chassis manual, the advance chassis manual (not sure what that is yet, I think it came out before the big manual did), and the body manual in less than 3 days.
The guy who recommended the OEM service manual idea to me also says to get the parts catalog...that's a little more difficult to find.
