I too have looked at Bentleys and the ETK and the factory E32 manual to no avail.
My guess is that the term is being used for the baffles located on the valve covers to seperate the oil out of the crankcase vapors.
I have read the word oil separator several times now and think I am quite familiar with the M70 engine. I have also checked the TIS and the ETK. Where is it and what does it look like. Or is this a stealth part? I am familiar with separators on large stationary Diesel engines. I am talking about MegaWatt engines! They have separators instead of filters.
