Heres some pictures of my install so far:)

Rear Diff with pipe going over fuel tank:


Pipe coming from over top of the tank following the chassis rail to the firt T joint:


T joint going to top of T-box (note ive dropped the box to gain access, remove front prop from T-box then undo the 3 rubber mounts then some manhandling is needed to gain access):


Pipe going to top of T-box:
can anyone advise on if i have 2 breathers on the t-box please, this is taken looking from the rear of the car:




Pipe running to the front diff and splitting with a T joint to go up into engine bay (note no jubilee clips on the T joint here so if it gets snagged it "should" disconnect here rather than at the diffs or T box):


Pipe coming up into engine bay:



Also is this the gearbox breather:


The pipe ive used is Braided PVC with brass T joints, the main line (diff to diff) is 1/2 inch Internal diameter, the one going to the T-box is 3/8 I.D, all T joints are half inch (which you can get the 3/8 onto if you warm it in hot water first)


Any help appreciated.

Thanks Gus2000 for your feedback

Last 2 pictures:

Took the plunge and did the gearbox breather as decided it couldnt be anything else (not to bad to get to go through the gap between the exhaust from the bottom, use a small child if your hand are to massive) 1/2 inch I.D pipe fits a treat:


Finished Engine bay, left hose coming in is the diffs and transfer box the hose coming up from the bottom is the gearbox, right hose that doesnt go anywhere is just to make it harder for water to get in:

Yes that is the g box breather and there is only one on the t box

One question is there enough slack on the diff breather pipe for articulation of the axle
