I know that I am a bit late in the day in responding to the subject, but I work shifts, and this is my weekend ( Mon and Tues ) - don`t get any time to use the computer during the week. A few years ago I saw in Sydney
( travelling in Pennant Hills Road ) an old type 40 series landcruiser with a home made snorkel
.It was made out of plastic vent pipe that you see on the side of houses, acts as a vent for the sewage sysyem. Called the `stink` pipe I believe, in the plumbing world and is approx 4'' in diameter. It was complete with off the shelf 45 and 90 degree bends. This plastic plumbing pipe glues together and obviously is water and air tight. Full marks to the person who owned the vehicle, as I think it would not have cost a great deal. The top of the snorkel
had the standard `stink` pipe top fitting also. So to all those who are contemplating making their own snorkel
, have a look in at your local plumber`s merchant first.
P/s the landcruiser was painted a dark pastel blue, possibly by hand with a brush. Is any one on this forum
know of this vehicle, to the best of my memory, I saw it in Sydney
in 2000 Approx.
