Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

My breathers are now halfasialy tubed to up front, the transmission and x-fer case are tapped with 1/4" NPT 90* elbows (ace hardware, about 4 dollars for the 90* and the pipe threadded end) and removed the stock breather caps on the tranny and x-fer, drilled them, tapped them, used teftlon tape, and put it all together. Get the drillbit and tap kit for the 1/4" NPT fittings, Super simple, both units MUST be out of the zook! I pointed the tranny one towards the passenger tire and the transfer case towards the rear passenger tire (estimates...).
I had then used some 10 dollar air hose and some 2 dollar fuel filters and have them halfasialy plumbed into the engine bay (weber + snorkel soon, will redo the breathers then.).

Whole cost for the pipe, 2 fittings, drill bit, and tap was about 25 dollars give or take.

Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

I was hoping that they were already threaded in and all I would have to do is take the threaded sheath out and put a threaded 1/4" fitting on it,

I did not want to take them out..

Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

On the diffs, I just took of the cap, and used a little silicon and a hose clamp to put a 1/2 inch ID hose on...

Not sure if the tranny and t-case can be done the same way.

BTW I popped the caps off with vice grips...

Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

I did both diffs, t-case and tranny. All are piped into my snorkel.

The diffs are easy..just pop the caps off and your hose will slip right over and can be hose clamped. The tranny and t-case look about the same but there isn't alot of nipple sticking up and there isn't a lot of room to make a bend in the hose before the hose hits the body. I'm not sure what size hose I used, but I was able to get a hose on the existing nipple in the t-case and get a small hose clamp on it. So far it's worked great.

Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

howdy,
i cut mine off with a hack saw when i did the spoa and then added neumatic air tube to let them flex up and down here's a pic.

i had to put a hose into the metal part of the diff to attach it to the neumatic tuben. hope this is a good idea for you. i also use this on my tranny and t-case. the neumatic hose is great because it is perbent and flex as much as you need it to.

Yup, I was worried about streess and the hose binding without a 90* tap on the tranny and transfer, I also was pulling the engine, so while I was there.................

Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

When I used some thick air hose, it'd fall off the small nipple on the transfer case, I tried glue/silicone, it just fell right off, that's why I went with the 90* fittings.

Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?

One of my good friends and life long NHRA pit crew mechanic had me run my diff breathers tubes into the hose that comes off the valve cover just before your PCV valve.
I cant recall the exact science behind it, but it works for me, and if water is getting in your valve cover youre screwed anyway! Nothing like a little hydro in your engine
