Breathers?

ok i DID search but none of the pictures work and there really isnt much detail to them

i already got the rear done and ran it behind the tail light

so my question is does any one have pics and info on location of the breathers, size and best place to route the tubing for the transmission, transfer case, and front axle

i have about 20 feet of 3/8th I.D fuel line left from i did the rear

all help and info is GREATLY appreciated

I don't know if you have an auto or manual transmission, but here are some pics from my auto. I think this can at least give you an ide on where to start.

Here is the pannel under the cup holder removed. Nitice the gold covered cap. This is what you want to pry off to expose a nipple.


Here's the nipple exposed (sorry to disappoint what you might have expected )


(ehh... what the heck- continue the metaphor) Put your hose on the nipple.


Run the new extended breather whereever you want. I ran mine up under the hood near the power distribution box. Replace the access pannel.



I hope this helps you with the transmission at least. Like I said, this is for an auto; a manual trans might be different.

I don't have any pics but I ran all of the hoses into the engine compartment & zip-tied them next to the master cyl using breather caps similar to THESE clamped on the ends of the hoses. All of the hoses run nicely in the left frame rail into the engine compartment.
