pcv woes?

ok, dont laugh or anything like that, I'm semi-new to the world of auto's.

I have a 76' LTD Landau "project" car; and I've been doing little bits and pieces on it here and there replacement wise.

So, today I was bored and decided it was time to check the pcv valve,
whilist taking it off I noticed there was a bunch of oil around the cap that held it in place; taking the cap off (which has the valve in it) I can see black oily grime inside. Now, correct me if i'm wrong but isn't the purpose of the pcv valve to prevent this, while providing cleaner emissions?

Re: pcv woes?

Depending on the age of the motor it could be a bit of oil blow by which would be normal, Yes you are right that it should prevent this from happining but i would not worry to much.
