TSB 10-3-7 REAR DRIVE AXLE VENT—OIL LEAK

Will the "KR" rear axle reservoir work on verts too?

 

 

No. It uses one of the body mount holes that is used by the added vert support braces. I was thinking I could just pull the brace bolt and install it on top of the vert brace but the open side of the brace faces the wrong way. I don't think you want to install it under the brace either.

Those vert braces are sure in the way!! They block the rear jacking points too... My bridge jack will only work on the pinchwelds...

What did that part cost ?

 

Do you have a pic of it installed ?

 

 

Here are a few pictures for you. Sorry they are not quite up to Grabber standards :hysterical:

And a couple of the new one installed.

It was hard to get the camera up in there but you can get an idea.

The list price on the vent is $46.02

SAI installed the KR rear axle reservoir on my SuperSnake convertible.

 

How? I don't know. Roger handled it.

 

I will have to get her up on a lift to inspect and take pictures for the forum.

Check out my mod post by Alex. There are pics of the KR reservoir installed. Bend the bracket on it and put it under the convertible brace :)

 

 

I saw those pics and ordered the KR reservoir this weekend... Hopefully it was shipped out this morning!!

 

Your car looks SWEET!!
