Q: snorkle and folding windshield

I'm interested now in the realm of do-it-yourself snorklery, but usually like folding down the windshield and haven't seen any snorkle designs that don't use this as an upright mount point. I could put the filter atop a 18" or so section of narrow stovepipe, but therein is my problem... I can't think of a solution that wouldn't look ridiculous.

Here's a post from a while back. I do have it fastened to the frame now, but not in the pic, just to make it more steady. I'm sure you could figure somewhere else to put a mount to serve the same purpose. Let me know if you have any questions.

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

I know you said a do-it-yourself snorkel, but if you are willing to spend an ungodly amount of money on an ARB snorkel, they will work without the windshield up.

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

Here's a pic of mine. I used some scrap yard air intake parts. the whole thing cost about $10. I just mounted it to the mirror bracket, and since its still flexible I can fold the windshield down without any problems.

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

cjcrawler, that design looks about perfect for my CJ... right about where you have the hole cut, there's a big bubbly rust spot that I'd been planning on cutting out and patching, and were I to lose the passenger side mirror (which I can never see anything out of anyway) I wouldn't cry much. I think I can guess some of the parts you used... do you have any underhood shots of the setup?

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

On an unrelated aside...

looking at your page, I noticed you have an older-model T18 that appears to have the reverse shift lever mounted on the left side. Assuming you rebuilt it yourself, do you recall how you were able to remove and re-install it with all the gears still in? Let me know if you need any clarification on my question. Thanks.

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

I dont have any pics of the inside, but I can describe it for you. I simply ran some intake hose from the side panel to the air intake, and secured them with hose clamps. I used two, so that I could disconnect it in the winter. I decided the best way to make it watertight was to use a smaller diameter hose than the piece on the outside, and just cut the small hole in the side panel. Two bolts and a bunch of silicone caulk and its on there. Pretty simple set up, took about 30 min to do.
The T18 does have the reverse on the left side, and no the fork doesnt come off with the gears in there, but it never has to come out to rebuild it anyway.

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

Can someone explain to me what is the purpose of a snorkel placed higher than your nose?

Re: Q: snorkle and folding windshield

So when you go through deep water, your intake doesn't suck the water in.
