But I think the video shows that an RAI is fairly useful when wading Rolling with laughter

So the diff etc has raised air in takes or one way valves?


there are raised breather pipes that are factory fitted to the , diffs , transfer and gearbox Thumbs Up

they terminate right at the back of the engine on the bulkhead

when i fitted the new front diff modified breather i did extend it, with a 6mm pushfit coupling then plastic pipe onto under the spare battery cover ,

Cool, Cool
Not that I will be doing much wading. I like the D3 too much. I have even cleaned it. Very Happy

The shogun didn't really get to me in the same way. It was a great work horse and went pretty much everywhere that I wanted to go.

Ref the diffs ...I meant that you don't need to add anything Wink

The OEM RAI is not a sealed unit, it doesn't give you any additional wading capability Smile

I guess the electronics get killed these days. I just put the bits that were at risk in small tupperware boxes seal each end.
It was the 2.8 Shougun, so not a lot in the way of ECUs.

Them were the days, I even waded with an old Ford escort diesel van when we got flooded around Edenbridge many many years ago.

They should have used an open top jeep, rather than wasting a D4!
