Ugent Engine oil breather advice needed

I have just fitted a new oil breather. I have fitted the new vortex one In place of the toilet roll type that was fitted.
I fitted separated votex part by just dropping it into the hole in the manifold then fitting the housing part over the top and bolting down. Now just thinking about it,should I have used part of the old filter housing to hold the vortex part into the new housing I got. As there was nothing with the new breather to hold the two parts together.
I would appreciate some quick advise incase I have to take it apart before any damage may accure.
Regards Ray.
