Hi folks,

I'm looking to install breathers for my gearbox, transfer case and differentials but everywhere I look seems to have sold out of kits. Could someone please let me know exactly what I need and where best to get it from?

Many thanks

You need 1/8 bsp tapered tap
2 x 1/8 bsp to 6mm push fit elbows for axles
gear box R7ME two ways of doing it 8mm to 6mm reducer
push the 8mm part into the rubber sleeve that comes from G box
Or i used this way pulled the sleeve off the box and replaced it with some rubber tube from the vac hub system.
around 6" long pushed onto the G box stub used a hose spring clip from vac system
then pushed the 6mm pneumatic tube around 2" then another hose clip
pneumatic tube front axle up to manifold on bulk head,G box also up to manifold,rear axle up to manifold with a 6mm equal T piece
which goes to T box (i have SJ transfer box) so can not give any advice on standard T box fitment :)

Thank you very much Jack!

Where does the breather attach to the gearbox exactly?
