Where to run breathers.....

I searched the archived... didn't find what I needed.

I'm wanting to install breathers on my tran/tranny/pumpkins... where should I run the hoses, and all that stuff?

Re: Where to run breathers.....

Run the hoses into the engine compartment. Then you can either tie it into the air cleaner box (clean side) or through a small gas filter to keep dirt out. If the gas filter, mount it high and then run a hose down a bit to make an upside down "U" to keep water out during river crossings. Not as good as a snorkle, But better than nothing.

Re: Where to run breathers.....

i started at the rear diff and ran one all along the frame up into the engine compartment and tucked it behind the stock air intake (i shouldn't ever get that deep, and if i do, i'll have much bigger problems to worry about)... then, i "T'ed" in the tcase and front diff... it's been a year now, but I think i used 1/2" hose that I got from home depot. I used 3/8" hose for the tcase because it has a smaller breather hole, so i just got an adapter that went from 3/8" to 1/2"... either that or i just heated the 3/8" hose in hot water and forced it onto the 1/2" T... I can't really remember, although i thought of both ideas when i did it... I didn't put a breather on the tranny because I could not find the hole

all in all cost me about 20 bucks... gonna change the diff oil here pretty soon so i guess i'll see how much good it did (put new oil in the same time i put the breathers on)

If you don't have a snorkel I would run it into the air filter box, or up into the cab. Just follow one of the hoses in and plumb it up under the dash somewhere.

Re: Where to run breathers.....

Re: Where to run breathers.....

I havn't done the trans/t-case yet(no deep water in so-cal) but I did the difs. Just pop the cap off the OE breather and slip on 1/2" OR 12mm hose(12mm works better if you can find it, I got some really nice nylon braided hose) make sure you use hose clamps and leave a loop in the hose for full droop. One idea for teminating them I just thought of, run a tee off the port on the air cleaner where the hose from the valve cover plugs in.

Re: Where to run breathers.....

Rich D: I just picked up everything at the parts store. Filters are just general purpose gas filters, The hoses I can't remember the size. I used a reducer splice to acomidate the difference in tube size
TexasA&M: The reason my overflow is moved, is because I have powersteering and it required me to relocated the bottle.

Re: Where to run breathers.....

How did you attach the hose to the tcase? There looks to be only like 1/4" of metal tube to attach to.

I think my tcase took on some water through the shifter hole. Is there a better way to seal that up than the stock rubber boot?
