So while rebuilding my diff I noticed that the breather was pretty much buried in WCSS and Walker Valley mud, even after several washes. Lots caked up between the drop plate and diff cover. This got me thing of extending the breather to not only to keep it from getting covered in mud and filled with water but to help with air exchange when hot. Have noticed this as being a popular mod on Toyotas and other wheelers so I set out.
What I ended up using was a 1/4 pipe barb fitting. I didn't even need to drill the existing hole as a 1/4-18 tap was a perfect fit.
After some cleaning and painting I reinstalled the fitting using thread tape and snugged it down tight. Bought about 6 foot of vacuum hose and started routing it.
I ended up running it into the back next to the fuel vent and ?Fuel Sender Cable?.
Then used a small fuel filter as a breather with a bit more tube. If water gets up to this point, then I have got bigger problems.
Have not ran or fully tested this set up yet, still in the process of installing some electric fans and will finish zip tieing and mounting the breather tomorrow.
Let me know what you think!
