Re: Waterproofing the Diff!
I have also seen people mount things like tennis ball cans,the plastic ones, upside down. You can paint 'em black to match the engine compartment better, then they run all their breather lines up into the bottom. With the can/bottle upside down it makes that nice little air pocket, like a diving bell, if the water gets up high enough. Another thing I have seen, but don't know of I trust, is some people have been known to put baby bottle niples on the vent tube. They remove the rubber line all together and run only the nipple. The claim is that the little hole allows the pressure out, but does not let the water in. I have heard that it works, but have never been brave enough to try it out. Anyway, that's just some stuff I have seen.....for what it's worth.
I should have mentioned they mount those cans under the hood, on the firewall........but you probably figured that out by now.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
