snorkel, water-tight engine

Hello everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has put a snorkel on their Jeep TJ. Any info would be great!

Also, any information on keeping water out of distributor, plugs, or any other vital engine components would be absolutely great!

Yes, I am new here and this is my first post, thank you for any info!

Re: snorkel, water-tight engine

I just filled out my profile, so you can e-mail me or whatever.

I tried those searches, but couldn't come up with anything. I don't know if I am not doing it correctly?

I also tried to seach this forum but I couldn't find anything.

I am just concerned about taking my stock jeep through deep ( two feet, not to deep of course) water.

Once again thank you for any help anyone can give me!

Phil

Re: snorkel, water-tight engine

Hi,
welcome to the list. I did a search on the "water proofing
" and "snorkel" (on the list) and came up with bunch of stuff. Do this: see almost on the top of the page where it says " Main Index | Search | My Home|..." click on that "Search". New window will show; For
- "Forum or Category to search" field select "Jeep-Short Wheelbase"
- "Words to search for" type in "water proofing"
-"Data range" select "All posts"

do the same for 'snorkel"

Links previously provided will not work because the way web site operates.

Re: snorkel, water-tight engine

Lightly smear white lithium grease on the distributor where the cap mates to it. Then run a bead of silicon adhesive around the base of the distributor cap and re-attach the cap. Sometimes we go as far as to put a bead of silicon where all the spark-plug wires attach. My PVC-pipe snorkel keeps the intake above the windshield. The vent lines were all raised up the roll-bar to keep water from diluting the fluids. I've yet to run new vents with my new drivetrain though.

Re: snorkel, water-tight engine

I made a snorkle out of pvc and a k&n cone filter from auto zone, it works well. I also tied my vent lines into it and my distributor cap vent into it to keep it dry. I need to put some silicone around the pulg wires becasue they get wet from time to time and then it runs really bad. If you have an automatic make sure you do the vent line mod to it or you will eat transmissions every time you get into deep water, i went though 2 before i fineally did the vent line relocation.

Filling out your profile was a good idea, i just sent you info about the swb bbs badlands bash.
