Snorkel bits

Recommended Posts

1992 ex mod Defender

2.5 n/a DieseL

Finally got around to connecting my snorkel up. Can anyone identify what these two lugs with threads are and what they’re for? 

Thanks

Breather pipe intakes? From the axles and timing chest.

I thought the axle breathers just got fastened to the top of the snorkel 🤷🏻‍♂️

I have a couple of military parts catalogues, I'll have a look in them, see if I can spot anything

Think you’re right with the axle breathers.

Had a look at both of them, sadly no information about snorkels. Lots of stuff about arctic heaters, snow blinds, interior insulation and stuff like that though

14Platoon,

Is there any provision in the bottom of your air filter housing to let out any water that gets sucked in by the snorkel?

I have sealed off the bottom of my housing, but think that I need some sort of a one way valve to let any water out of the system so it doesn't make its way to the engine.

Cheers,

Colin

No water is to get in there at all. The air filter and snorkel bits all get sealed watertight so the only opening is at the very top of the snorkel. Any water elsewhere would damage the engine as it can get sucked in.

They must be cos that is where I got them from. There are 2, the first one covers the parts which differ from the civilian model, the second details the more specific military bits. I'll see if I can find the link again.

Not wanting to quibble, but wouldn't some water be sucked into the snorkel through the inlet mushroom if it were raining?

That's a good question. When I saw these in operation on farm tractors that didn't happen, I think there's a sort of cyclone effect that separates the rain. The tractor mushrooms were see-through, but had to be cleaned.

Whether the cyclone effect would happen at seventy miles per hour is something I don't know.

You are more than welcome, Mike. The arctic stuff is in the part 2 book. They take a little while to download, or to get to the stage where you can download them
