ppillard - supplies for diff breathers?

looks like you did a nice job on those diff breathers... would you happen to remember what size hose that is? and also how much of it you used? since i dont have a snorkel i think ill just have my hose terminate in the engine compartment with some type of fuel filter (or something along those lines) on the end...

any other advice to make this an easy install???

thanks

Re: ppillard - supplies for diff breathers?

Airline works well for diff breathers1/2" works well and you can go to any home supply place and get plastic T's to connect it all,to your air breather or snorkel.Works real well too!!!

Thanks! It was a super-easy mod, and I think it'll save me a lot of headache.
Yeah, I used 1/2&quot; inner diameter hose. I bought 20' of it, and that wasn't
enough. I have yet to truly finish the job, as you also need tubes coming from
the t-case and the tranny. I would recommend buying a t-connector and using it
to tap the t-case hose into the line coming from the rear diff. That way you don't
need as much hose and you won't double the amount of hose you have running under
your zook that can snag on something. Zip ties are a must. The breather for the
tranny is right in front of the shifter under the boot. You actually have to drill
and tap a 1/8&quot;hole in it to attach a 90* elbow. If you're not gonna install
a snorkel (which I highly recommend), then you can likely get away with not messin'
around with the trannny. I believe someone recommended that I use some better
hose that is protected from UV, but of all the stuff I had to choose from, this
was the only stuff that was flexible enough for the job. Maybe they just didn't
sell the right stuff at the hardware store I was at. Any comments on this, anyone?
If you're not going to install a snorkel (did I mention I highly recommend one?),
then I would recommend running your hoses right into the air breather. I like
the idae of keeping the &quot;lungs&quot; of the vehicle centralized, that way
you can minimize trouble-shooting in the future. <a href="http://www.worldoffroad.com/begin/snorkel.asp">Here's
a great site for waterproofin' your ride. </a> Hope this helps! Lemme know if
you have any more questions!

Re: ppillard - supplies for diff breathers?

You don't have to remove the t-case. Get on your back and look up at the rear of the t-case. You will see it there, smiling innocently at you. You can pop it off with a small prybar or flatblade screw driver and a hammer without too much difficulty... It looks EXACTLY like the ones on the diffs.

by this do you mean it just pops off and you can put it back on? or do you mean break it off?

i know you wont be putting it back on, but im not one that like to randomly break stuff... if thats what needs to be done, thats ok, just as long as i know im supposed to do it, you know?

thanks again

Re: ppillard - supplies for diff breathers?

The cap will pop off exactly like the diff caps. To be honest, I don't know if you can put it back on as I haven't had reason to try! It looks undamaged when it comes off, with the exception of the little dent the prybar might have put on it. I think there is just a little ridge that holds it on. It didn't look like anything "broke" to me... In any case, it has to come off if you want to run a hose from it.

Re: ppillard - supplies for diff breathers?

yeah, thats no problem, i was just like to make sure that i know what im doing, you know? it helps to hear other peoples experiences so that ill have an idea of exactly how to do something.

to hold the hose on the breather you just used a hose clamp correct?

ok, i think that might be the last of the questions.

thanks again

Re: ppillard - supplies for diff breathers?

Hey, I completely understand! I raked this board and asked a ton of questions too! I post a question with almost every mod I do, 'cause I don't wanna miss out on something I shoulda thought of before I did it! Yeah, I just used hose-clamps. That simple! Hope it all works out good! Good luck
