you need the vent tube itself or looking for that little white check valve you usally find at the end of the vent lines?

I need what ever it is that screws into the axle, I figured I would just run a piece of hose off of that...

one off of a late-YJ or TJ D35 works, also. it HAS to be the kind that screws the T block to the axle housing THROUGH the T block... (ie., the T block has a huge hole in the center of it where the breather passes through)

Yup thats what I was looking for, but couldn't find one so I drilled a new hole in the axle and bolted the T block to the axle with a bolt. It was the only way I could finish the brake job. So either one would work at this point....

I was going to suggest just welding a bolt head to the axle, then sliding the t-block over the bolt and using a nut to fasten it...

isnt the vent fitting just a pipe thread? get a piece of pipe and thread it in, then slide a hose over that and clamp it on

I tried that I went to home depot and found a 1/4 nipple(the smallest they had)but it was still to big for the hole. Hate to drill another hole in the axle...

just goto a plumping or auto supply and get a pipe fitting that is a barb fitting on the other end and put that in there.
