ax-5 vent question

So I drained my tranny today and was wowed to see nothing but mud come out of my tranny. I'm glad I did it and hopes it stops some of the hard shifting I have. Anywho Is there a vent tube on this thing cause i could find one and assume there isnt one because my gear oil looked like mud as it was comin out or do I need to add one somewhere?... Thanks

It has a little metal vent cap located on top of the tranny next to the shifter.

No just a metal cap that fits kinda loose. I once saw a post on removing it and running a vent line but couldn't find it. Maybe someone else can chime in.

It should have a tube like the axles do, only I don't know for sure that it actually came with one.
If it has the little floating cap, you can remove it & use some hose barbs with the same size thread. (NPT) or National Pipe Thread.

It's prolly 1/8"NPT, Use a 3/16" hose/tube & run it to a tee (hose barb tee) that also connects to the transfer case breather tube.
From there, it should lead to a high spot on the engine side of the firewall.

At this point, you can use another barb & a 1/8" NPT female coupler to re-connect the little breather with the floating cap.

These components will go from hot to cold when you submerge them in water.
Without breathers, the air inside them cools & the vacuum created from that, will suck the water past the seals of the shafts that pass through their cases.
