Does anyone know where you can buy the Legris vents that are supplied with the diff breather kits. I want extend the transmission vent as well, but don't really want to buy another kit. I reckon they are worth about 4 bucks. I could use the original cruiser one but have been told the springs can fail and then snap shut making it useless.

any ideas

Andrew,
I use a diff breather kit put out by Pirahna. It has rubber hose that I have brought from both diffs up into the engine bay. There are blue-coloured filters on the end of each one, not sure what they're called though.

What about just tapping a "T" piece into your existing line and using the existing filter/s

Cheers

Thanks Roachie,

I already have the Piranha jobs. Just didn't want to buy another kit for the gearbox. "T" piece is a possibility.

cheers

Andrew,

I've just used a plastic inline fuel filter that fits the end of the hose. $3 or so at Supercheap.

Just place it up nice and high in the engine bay.

Why bother with a filter, what's it gonna suck in??

Extend the breather hose nice and high up the firewall with a U-turn at the end pointing downwards a tad.

It's cheap insurance really. Prevents dust and grit making its way in.
