    I did the search, but I can't compile a list of things that need to be snorkled to be able to submerge w/o damage. On my ATV (which I snorkled), all the breathers were in the same place, so it was easy to know. I just had to extend them, w/ the intake snorkle, and then all I needed was exhaust snorkle.

    Anybody know of everything that needs to be snorkled? Thanks.

    BTW - Oh, and if you've done it before, maybe post some useful info on it. That would be great.

    i just snorkeled the intake. everything else is water proof. i didnt find a need to snorkel the exhaust. i had it under water hundreds of times and havent had a single problem.

    You should run the vent lines from your tranny, axles, etc. to a palce higher than you think you will ever be submerged. If your engine stays running you really dont have to worry about the exhaust. dont forget the electrical system.
