Sorry - I had intended to make that clear, but didn't.
Yes - with that P/N, you get everything you need - see photos below (keep reading 98Base - you don't need the rigid pipe with the new-style assembly)
Here's what you get:
The rubber elbow in the right of the photo plugs into the PCV valve. The straight rubber hose (pointing to the lower left) plugs into the pressure bottle where an existing hose now resides. The existing hose (from one of the heater hoses behind the engine) plugs into the second heat exchanger port (the one pointing downward). The rubber elbow in the left of the photo plugs into the fitting in the valve cover (see the photos below).
In the photo below, I positioned the new assembly next to the existing one. Looks like it will fit fine. I'm shaping the hose that comes with the new assembly to show how it will plug into the pressure bottle (in place of the old hose next to it - that old hose is the one that will connect to the other port of the heat exchanger):
Here (below), you can see that by removing the semi-rigid plastic tube (red arrow
) from the 90° fitting coming out of the valve cover (the semi-rigid tube and the 90° fitting coming out of the valve cover are separate pieces) and rotating the 90° fitting to line up with the green arrow
, the rubber elbow of the new assembly will plug right on (notice from previous picture that I have the new assembly shifted a little to the left, so if moved to the right to plug in to the PCV valve, everything should fit perfectly). I will need to be real careful removing the semi-rigid tube (which gets discarded) so as not to break the 90° plastic piece coming out of the valve cover.
