Here are some of the part numbers that work:

AC Delco: FB131
Baldwin: SA4137
Deutsch: BF412
Motorcraft: FA 1118
Purolator: B23165
WIX: 66501

Here is what the current Fram packaging looks like. Also some size pix with a quarter for reference.
Do you know if it passes visual? I had a problem when I replaced it with another PCV valve.

Yes, i know this is an old thread....Just posting for posterity

Hastings part # CB36

Breather is not serviceable as it was held together with some glue or exoxy, but certainly came apart easy enough. I suppose if one was frugal enough they could replace with a filter/breather media of their choice at a designed service interval

1. As I said before, I replace that silly lil pasta elbow with a
AC Delco: FB131 / Baldwin: SA4137 / Deutsch: BF412 / Fram: BA6592 / Hastings: CB36 / Motorcraft: FA 1118 / Purolator: B23165 / WIX: 66501
on the passenger side valvecover's fitting.

2. I then splice a a NAPA 3299 fuel filter into the same line, between the 88 Ford Tempo's breather filter and the throttlebody.

3. I then splice another NAPA 3299 fuel filter into the PCV line that goes to the inlet manifold.

(Catch Can would probably work better than a fuel filter. One catch can might even work better than the two I'm using.)

4. In place of the Gen2 LT1 old style PCV valve, I use the Gen4 SBC PCV thing (12572717).

Every 18 months, I replace #1, #2, & #3, 6 months apart. Have not needed to replace #4 yet, just blow it out with compressed air every 6 months.

Thanks Marky for the always informative post.

Yes, i did install an unmolested filter and will be installing a catch can once i delete the ABS unit. i currently have a filter inline with pcv.

I plan on using the ABS bracketry and location for catch can (i Think)

I had only posted the pictures because through my research i couldn't find any pictures of the internals, and certainly not to discount RJI's comments but he referenced it as a baffle and it piqued my interest.

and yes i also have the newer pcv valve which i believe i got from an H2
