    LightbulbRear axle breather innovative workaround needed


    Got a nice Hauser 9 incher without a vent on it.
    If I give it the beans or go for a long run the oil gets ****ed out diff mounting flanges, presumably because of heat n pressure.
    Don't do it round the doors, only presumably when it gets real hot or worked hard

    Sick of topping it up. No power in lockup so extra effort involved in going to pals with long extension lead etc to drill into it to fit a normal vent affair.

    Anyhoo, as a short term workaround is it possible to fit a kinda jag irs vent tube into the normal grub screw type refill hole on diff carrier?
    I know it might puke a bit out initially but it aint gonna pump it dry shirley?

    "We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again."

    Give it a go, might work? The problem I see is that the breather will be at the level of the oil in the diff, not ideal. You should realy vent up top as you know. But if the vent pipe goes high maybe 4 -6 inches then downturns at the end an inch or so and is oil tight up to the end and its end is filtered, should work. Filter is as it cools it will breathe in, and you dont want outside stuff inside stuff. An observation: You say it barfs out of the diff mounting flange? The normal barf point is the axle oil seals, then on to fill your brakes up with Ep90. This is useually the weak point, shouldn't be the diff mounting flange. I think it needs a look at the flange to see if it has probs with the gasket face's and such like.
