You need an air inlet vent to go along with the PCV. You can't pull air out of the crankcase without having an inlet.
I recently had a balancer seal go bad and I was able able to replace it without removing the timing cover. What I did was this:
Removed the accesories and water pump from the front of the engine. Carefully pried out the old seal. Put a light smear of RTV around the outside edge of the new seal, and got it started as straight as possible by hand. Used a piece of threaded rod(grade 8, as it is my balancer installer as well) of the prioper size (I forget the size) and threaded it into the crank snout. Found a short piece of PCV pipe that is the same OD as the seal, cut square with the chop saw. Used a BIG flat washer and a nut on the back side of the PCV pipe , and tightened the nut, slowly pressing the seal into place. Essentially the same as installing the balancer. It worked perfectly, and saved the headache/heartache of breaking the front timing cover to pan seal.
