vent lines 08 brute force

Hey guys,


Looking to ensure the brute can run in some water.


I see the vent line from the front diff, looks like a black hose that runs up to the pod (where the gauge cluster is), I see a few others there too, assuming they are good and include CVT, Crank (i should get a filter on this??), and the rear diff/geargase?


The vent for the fan was a plastic clear tube right? That is just hanging as I upgraded the fan, no more vent needed to my knowledge.

The vent manifold has: Both front and rear diffs, Fuel Tank vent and Fan. That's it as I remember. No CVT and No Crankcase vent. The crankcase vent ports to the air box. You should seal-up the "Duck-Bill" on the air box as well as ensure the oil capture tube still has it's plug on the end. It's port is just below the Crankcase vent port. On the fuel tank vent, it uses rubber grommets on either end of the frame and uses the upper tube to get to the front. You should run an external line to the front and seal up those holes.

I'll look into that. I did find some useful info on here and muddinmyblood but still wanted to reachout. I'll try to look more into it.


Thank you.

Is this the fuel vent line? Looks like he ran it up to the pod:


What size tubing should I be getting? I'd like to get this to be able to go through water to the headlights or just above.



This is partially helpful:

My canam is sealed up to the pod from the factory which is nice! Plus a CVT intake and outlet too. Drain plug in CVT cover as well. A lot newer though, not picking on our brute force by any means.

Looks like it's already done. And Silicone tubing can kink in heat so if you are going to replace it, use a fuel line...like 3 or 5/16". Just measure the nipple and get the right size.

My can am has silicone/vinyl tubing. But I get your logic. I'll have to go check the size with a caliper or ruler.
