So I am doing some maintance to the old jeep and came across a leaking rear axle, like all of it, cover seal both end seals and the pinion seal.
I noticed the breather/vent on my diff cover looked a little ragged and beat up and when I touched it, air came out so apparently it's not working correctly
Now covers with vents (that I have found) are a bit high in price.
It is possible to just remove the vent, attach a 90 degree elbow and run a hose up to a dry area or does it need to be some sort of check valve?
Thanks in advance
