Your original Q related to a check valve that might prevent crankcase
pressurization and resulting dip stick ejection. The check valve you point
out will not do so.

I don't think so, Phil. How would such a device work in this case? The flame
arrestor is the only possible restrictor in the breather before it dumps
into the intake immediately ahead of the throttle body.
Have a look at the breather hose diagram posted by SJM
and read his description:
"This 1991 200TQ 20V breather hose also has a Tee in the center of the hose,
which connects to the intake manifold via a flow regulating one way check
valve and a molded rubber hose. The check valve will close under positive
manifold "boost" pressure. "
