I've seen many catch cans/breather tanks that have the 2 pipes from the rocker cover going to the can but nothing going from the can to the inlet manifold. I have seen the odd one that has a line going back to the sump and the breahter has a little KnN filter on top of it. I understand the principle of this but how does it all work?

well coz the pcv needs constant vaccume it needs to go to the intake mani via the can. The other breather from the back of the rocker cover is a possitive pressure feed(hence it being plumbed to the intake tubing on a std coonie) but ive just ran a lil bit of tubing behind the cover and chucked on a lil filter so it can breathe as it wants. Ill put some pics up later
