WHILE THE Hilux was on the hoist at Harrop we had Kevin install one of the company’s neat diff and gearbox breather kits. This kit extends the diff, gearbox and transfer case breathers up into the engine bay to prevent water ingress when driving through water. The lines fit to the standard breather fittings on the driveline component and run up to the engine, where they meet in the billetaluminium manifold block. Another line runs to the airbox to ensure it’s placed in clean air and out of the water and road grime. Get the Australian-made breather kit from Harrop’s online shop, or from Opposite Lock stores, for $165.
The new Harrop Elocker back in the OE diff centre. Harrop’s billet breather block is a neat touch.
Insert diff A into housing B, and get a grip! Back in place and looking like new.
