Transmission Vent

There used to be a link in the Tech pages on 2bigbroncos website and Soderbloms, but it is not available anymore. I am trying to figure out how to change the current vent on my C6 transmission to a barb fitting so I can extend the lines. Does anyone have a recommendation and or pics?

Is there some reason you can't make the stock C6 vent work? on the E4OD it's not barbed either, it might have had a little "bulge" at the end, can't really remember, but I just left it and put a piece of tubing on it after I had put a little sealant on the outside vent walls.

Its a weird fitting, almost like a screw head with a hole in the center, I removed the cap, its about 7/16 round and 3/8 long. Im sure I could rig something but I would rather put a barbed fitting in it so I know its proper. Oh and yes I tried "unscrewing" it, but it doesn't do anything but spin.

I did not need to change the vent fitting on mine...just ran a longer hose and small hose clamp.

its some kind of funky press in deal on a c-6. i used a screwdriver to turn mine, then i could pull it out. then i replaced it with a 90* fitting that was plastic and would have a press in fit. then i aimed the fitting towards the bellhousing and clamped the hose onto that. hope this helps

Reach up around the trans, its on the top, its a check valve cap, you can feel it but not much room to get to it


EVERYTHING MANUAL EXCEPT THE TRANSMISSION:

Yo corn,
As fordbronco1995 righteously advised!

"... easy to get to if you are willing to pull your carpet. There is a very convenient access panel in the center there and it makes reaching the top and sides of the tranny very easy..."

And, "go inside the cab, and pull the carpet up so that you can unbolt and pull off the E4OD floor cover plate. You will then clearly see the little cap. get that off CAREFULLY, would not want any junk falling down into the breather hole.
...as I recall it has a little breather "hat" on it, which I had to remove"
... I was able to get that top hat of it off, leaving just a short tube, which I then attached a small breather hose to and ran up into the engine compartment."

"...you can pop the trans tunnel cover and look at it. its a crimped on cap that allows excess fluid to boil out when it over heats." by jowens1126
