Re: diff vents

"do they just pop off? ".... Yes
"and then is there just a nipple under that that a hose and fit on?? "....Yea you can put a hose and a hose clamp on there to vent the axles.

Last time I had to work on the axles(had to pull the third members) I took the grinder and cut that little nipple of and taped the hole to fit 1/8" NPT thread , so I could thread in a smaller barb(sp?) fitting to hook my vent hose to.A dab of silcone on the barb fitting ,slid the hose on and no more water in the axles [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: diff vents

What a great idea !!
Guess the tap method would work for the pesky little nipple on the t-case also ?

Re: diff vents

yea, you want the smallest line posable to feep the gear oil out if you flop/roll it. Air dosent require a big hose to vent

Re: diff vents

If you rout the vents up independant of each other they can also be used to fill the diffs. just pull the check plug conect the vent line to your gear oil pump fill till it starts coming out.
