The cap on my front axle breather went away. I don't see any breather in the SOR catalog. Any ideas for replacements?

Read the writeup theo linked- you don't want the stock "breathers" anyway.

Any 1/8" NPT fitting will thread in where the stock breathers were. Use that to run a line somewhere high (firewall), this will keep water out and oil in your axles much better than the stock setup.

This kind of works, but does not get rid of the troublesome one-way valve, nor the tiny orifice in the stock breathers.

I removed a stock breather (which I had previously pried the cap off of) and heard a disticnt hiss of pressure release as I unscrewed it.
