Hi all i have just bought a 1986 austin mini. But it didn't have a pcv valve or any breather pipes. Does my car need them?

Yes,no,maybe,probably.Look at a manual for your car and see how your car compares.In all its years of owners it may have lost or gained stuff which may or may not have been a good idea.
It will have had some form of crankcase ventilation.Steve..
