Finding a use for that old part.
This past Sunday it was oil change day for my 95 5.2 GC. I got all my stuff ready to check over everything grease,filters old socks for rags lol. It went smooth yes I do take the time to check it all front and rear diffs t-case all fine. I found a slight wetness by my passenger side front cv maybe axle seal will have to take serious look at that.
Anyway I went to put in the new air filter stupid me instead of removing the crankcase breather tube. I pushed it up and yep that plastic tube cracked off. Stupid move on my part what to do next no place around would have a replacement not in this town. Here's a trick didn't have another hose long enough to make the span to cut out that plastic tube. I remembered I did the water pump back in Jan last year. I find that that smaller heater bypass tube which is not the right one for the 5.2 it's to short not like the ome one that will cost you 150 to 180. So if you flip that short metal tube it makes a great replacement for the broken plastic tube. I how ever will look for a new one because the metal on might cause condensation hot and cold not sure on that yet only time will tell but will keep checking it. My GC also let me know that it need a new battery all the work then click click would not start quick check to find batt was over 5 years old and I dropped in a red top optima.
