Front Axle Breather Question Dana 30
 
Hello,

Can anyone show me a picture of how the front axle breather tube should be routed on a 1986 CJ7? Mine just goes up to the frame, and is just stuffed onto a hole in the frame. Lastly the breather cap in broken off.

Thanks,

Kevin C

Most of the time when I replace them, I run it as high up as I can and then loop it back down. Then again, I get into some pretty damaging things in the woods.

Thanks for your response. How and where do you run it? Do you attach to the fire wall, just ty-wrap it? do you have any pics? I want to do it correctly, and deffinatly want to keep it away from mud, and water.

It attaches directly up to the RHS radiator and secures at the top thereof i believe

As long as it's up high enough to keep water out there really isn't a wrong or right way to do it. From the factory they were routed up onto the grille shell and attached to one of the same bolts that the radiator uses.

Here's the factory setup that CSP is describing.

I have been thinking about running my vent tubes inside under the dash.

I'm not sure I would do this. Unless you like the smell of the axle oil.

I thought about that too. The smell might get bad in summer

It might clash with our already gas cologne we are use to smelling like.

Mine has a strange...liquid wrench and oil smell...my wife hates it, maybe that's why I can't get her to ride in it, or touch me?

Even with my carb properly tuned per the Holley section on JunkyardGenius I get that cologne...adds to the experience I guess. :laugh:

Axle Vent Tubing
 
Okay,

Quick question. Does anyone know what type of tubing that is for the differential ventilation? I want to replace both front and back (Dana 30 / 44). After 27 years mine is looking sort of old and ratty.

Regards,

Kevin C.
