    my D60 came without the little metal fitting that you connect a breather hose too. I ask at 4x4 shops and they dont seem to be able to get em. Short of placing a special order from Boyce, anyone know where I might get either a) a real OEM type fitting or b) something that could easily be substituted? TIA, dont want my D60 collecting water inside. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Go to oreilly, auto zone, pep girls, go to there brasss pipe fittings "might be behind the counter" they shuld have a fitting that hass threads on one end and a hose nipple thingy on the other. I used one to replace the stock one on my sm465.
    Hope this helps

    i dont think the hole in my D60 has threads in it... looks like a friction fit fitting. Did you just epoxy yours in or did urs have threads?

    Hey,
    You may not like it but...
    Epoxy a small piece of metal line into the hole and you got yourself a place to put that hose.

    I just tapped it in with a hammer, sense it is made out of brass it made a tight fit.
