diff new gears blowing fluid

hi guys

can anyone tell me if this location of the breather is ok? i just got regeared and am in the process of brwaking in the gears. its constantly blowing fluid out the line. the line is about 2' long so it has a lot of horizontal real estate. could that be bad as well? could the diameter of this small hose be a problem as well?

This location will never work...you are directly inline with the ring gear which slings a ton of fluid at high velocity, relocate the vent to either side axle tube on the top side of the tube...don't vent from the differential housing, move the vent and you will stop blowing fluid.
