PCV valve location

Tryin to find the PCV valve. Where is it and what does it look like? Maybe some pictures? My truck is a 1992 F150 with a 302. Any help is appreciated.

In a valve cover opposite the oil filler, towards the back, with a line to the intake.

This is an odd one, but see how it fits into the valve cover?

More like what yours should look like. PCV goes into the hole in the right valve cover in this one:

It looks like a black cilinder with two "arms" that come out of the same side, sadly, it's located behind the engine, near the firewall, a little at the passenger's side.

No.

I also suggest that you replace it with an OEM/Motorcraft PCV Valve. Do a search here in the '8-96 Forum for Technical aspect of PCV valves.

The links below are very informative.
