Thanks. I have a timing light, it just never occurred to me to check the timing. All the other cars I've worked on with efi have a crank position sensor on the crank, which can't be adjusted, and don't need the timing to be set.
The PCV uses inlet vacuum to create airflow through the crankcase to stop condensation in the crankcase. The valve on the inlet manifold regulates the amount of air being sucked from the crankcase via the laft hand pipe on the rocker cover. The pipe on the right hand side of the rocker cover...

You should have noticed the cooling system getting over pressurised though.
