    It was pretty easy since axles & transfer case already had vents in place to hook the hoses up to.

    The transmission was a little trickier...
    I had to use the CV joint boot from a ATV to seal up the shifter on the transmission, and drill/tap a port for a vent hose nipple.

    The distributor cap was the most simple of all since I have the 'TeamRush' ignition upgrade with the large Ford style distributor cap, I simply pulled the distributor cap vent off, and screwed a MIG welder tip directly into the distributor cap and that made a really good nipple...
    I use an inline air dryer to the air feeding the distributor, that keeps things from sputtering and coughing when it's humid, they are about $3 each and last a full season for me.

    I use a regulator connected to my storage tank/distribution block that keeps the pressure to about 10 PSIG going out to the distributor & running gear.
    Since I usually air down, and I use the regulator to air my tires down, it's already set at around 10 PSIG, so it's no big deal...

    I see guys change seals every year and raise vents way up trying to keep the water out...
    The next logical step for me was to just apply pressure to them to keep water out.

    Now I have the distributor/drive train on a electric over air solenoid, so when I flip the 'Deep Water Switch' on the dash, it turns off my electric fan and turns on the air to the stuff that will be under water so I don't have to get out and manually plug in/turn everything on anymore... Makes things handy when I remember to turn it on!
