I had a water problem for awhile on my Rancher, I sealed the recoil and still got water. It wasn't until I rerouted the crankcase hose that I stopped the water.

What year is your Rancher? Also, why would rerouting the crankcase vent stop the water from going in your motor as long as you werent filling the air box with water?

All I know is that even after I sealed the recoil I got water. After I rerouted the crankvent I didn't get anywater at all. I sealed the box tight.
The only reason I did it was because you could see where the water would come in the box behind the rubber rivets that hold the crank vent in the airbox. My guess is that it was getting into the engine there.
