For the breather element, I just ran a longer line right above the brake booster and put a filter on the end (the type that used to sit inside the old type air cleaners). That line could easily be plumbed into the main snorkel line (after the air filiter) with a fitting.Swampwalker3 said:Love the Idea Oxi, I was thinking more about ideas and scrummaging through the plumbing section than I was working today. (Ace is the Place).
Something I just learned though is the hose coming off of the breather cap that attaches to your air cleaner, what did you do to accommodate?
Also, any reason why the PVC gains girth before it enters the dash from the outside?
Here's a hacked/simple one I made for my rock crawler. Used RTV to seal up all the holes/seams in the stock air cleaner. Not gonna be running 6 feet or more water in that, so it wasn't as ciritical as my mudder.Spookshow ONE said:Any suggestions for coming straight up HMMWV style?
I wouldn't use anything less than 4"IMOSwampwalker3 said:The removal of the heating/air unit simple enough (For someone that has to ask)?
I want to run my pipes out to the passenger side, but the unit is in the way and consdering I never use the system in my truck so I doubt I'll ever use it in the BKO. Also, it looks like it's been dead for quite some time..
And; I'm wanting to stick with the size of the dist. inlet, so 4" would be my motive of use, however it's a tad beefy but doesn't damage my line of veiw (Pillar), but considering trails and the sort, that's a massive over hang. Would breaking down to 3" be suffice for a 360 engine?
If this bowl were engineered into the lower filter housing(pointing up as it is in this picture with the lid upside down) you would have an extremely mud/water resistant air cleaner! Water would have to slosh into the hole at top to enter the carb. Shoot! The engine might starve for air and shut off before water could enter the cylinders and Hydro-lock! In case you "accidentally" entered deep water. I honestly don't see how it would help against water intrusion as it is pointing down into the carb, perhaps funneling water into the carb. Am I looking at it right?
