Re: Battery Vent        

On my '88 the vent hose is the clear vinyl from the RH end of the battery to a little black rubber device with a receiving hole in the top to take the hose. The clear vinyl hose is only maybe 1-1/2" long. Under the black rubber device s a long black neoprene hose that takes the vapor from the battery down to a steel loop welded on the frame, beside the exhaust pipe. The said loop holds this hose and also the carb overflow hoses plus the radiator overflow hose. When removing/replacing the battery, all that's necessary is to carefully insert the clear vinyl hose into the said receiving hole, working with a needle-nose pliers or similar, since it's inaccessible with the fingers.
