Hi guys
Dont laugh at this but if you have a snorkel and it rains surly water must
get into the snorkel, so where does it go then. It cant go into the air
filter area cause it would not be nice for the engine. So what happens to
all the rain that entres the snorkel.
Thanks

Hi John,
The snorkel does go into the air box, but the head is designed to spin the
warter out - see http://www.safari4x4.com.au/docs/product.htm for more info,
espescially at the bottom of the page.

Hi Guys
If you fit or have a vehicle with a snorkel how do you know its water tight,
with out the obvious thing of the engine dieing in high water.
Is there a test or something you can do or get do to see if it is indeed
working right.
cheers

Thing is it's not just the snorkle that needs to be water/airtight but
every pipe and hose that leads into the inside of the engine, i.e.
breathers, plenum hose, airbox lid etc.
How you test I don't know, I would never have the balls to get into
water that deep anyhow.

Hi John,
There is no 'standard' test, but I guess the best option would be if there
was some way for you to pressurise the snorkel and inlet e.t.c. in situe
and then spray each join with a soapy water solution as they do when
checking for leaks with gas equipment.
Having said that trying to presurise the system would be a pain in the rear
so most people work on judgement, making sure that each joint is properly
sealed.

Restrict the airflow into the snorkel, it's like putting your hand on
the end of a vacuum cleaner. If the engine dies you won't be sucking
enough water to kill the engine, so goes my logic anyway. Then dunk it
deep and keep your fingers crossed ;-)

Jon,
Have you tried this yourself? I guess you didn't :)
I did - the suction force distorted the air filter inlet pipe, leaving
a crack in the seam.

Alan a ?crit :
Alan,
they are made by ??? for "All Amercican Imports" in the Netherlands.
They look a bit similar to "safari" and have a lot bigger section area
than the tiny "airflow". They are a pretty good value for money once you
forget it's just a piece of plastic tube.
