For all the hassle of ordering such a simple part a fuel filter do, plus they are very cheap anyhow. Thanks


You could probably also just cut the section off with the cap and then throw a barbed fitting between that and your new/extended line...?

Yes you could. Or just pull the cap out if it isn't missing. It depends. I put hose clamps on 2 of mine because the cap fell out in my hands. I used a fuel filter to replace the missing cap, and on my rear diff, i couldn't get the cap out at all, So, yes, it would require cutting off and just using a barbed fitting.

Yeah I forgot to keep the one from my stock diff before I sold it. Another option I thought of while looking thorugh the local Canadian Tire is the vents for ATV/Dirtbike gas caps, just need to find a cheaper source for them.

all good ideas - Dirt - what was the cost for the vent you pictured?

My tubing came in today, but it was freezing rain outside...so when it's dry, I'm going under the truck!

At Canadian tire they were $12.99 I think. I'm sure if checked at a couple atv shops they could be had for half that.

You don't want to use those gas tank vent caps because they're only one-way valves.  The diff needs to expel air when it warms up and suck in air when it cools down, otherwise you risk sucking in water when you quickly cool down a diff whilst submerged in water or forcing gear lube out of the seals as it warms up (depending on the way the one-way valve works).

Perfect reminder that this is something I need to do, atleast the rear axle, trans and t-case vents. On the same topic anybody know where one can buy the factory style vent caps? I looked at a few parts stores in the 'HELP' section but no luck.

I pull em each time I'm at the bone yard chevy, ford, dodge & jeeps have em.

That is what I ended up doing during a couple trips to the junk yard, now have a few spare ones too.
