Default pcv valve?

Does a series 2 V12 have a pcv valve, the Haynes manual has no info. If so, where would the valve be located?

Should do. Our US spec 76 has one on the back of the lefthand air cleaner. We recently replaced it with a generic off the shelf part by taking the existing part to O'reillys Auto and finding one the same size. Didnt take long so I assume tthese things are standard sizes.

I've never seen a Jaguar version. But, the principle is generic.
A very simple valve inside. A failure is usually caused by crankcase
goop clogging it or impeding the function. Often, repeated doses of carb cleaner and compressed air restores he function.

One of the beneficial developments in environmental protection that is also good for engine health.
