No, its not supposed to have a gasket....you didn't break anything, damn that gasket you replaced looks way better than the one I had on my VC. Mine was all wrinkly and withered. Looks like I have an extra part to replace when I do my next oil change :cool:

The tube works with the PCV system....it captures blowby gases in the engine and returns them to the manifold to be part of the air/fuel mixture. If the tube is slightly damaged, but air flow is not blocked or restricted, you should be able to use the VC.

If you have any doubts just get another B13 VC....they are like $13 at my local junkyard...

Thats where I had gotten it from for like 10 bucks, but that was the only thing that I saw that was wrong with it besides being full of oil. So without it I shall be find when I go to install it? I already got the new PCV, new orings, new oil cap and new headgasket for it.

If it were me I would install the VC, cross my fingers and start up the car. If it runs as it did before I changed the VC and the PCV valve is operating normally, then I'd leave it.
