I snorkled my 2006 Rubicon and am trying to plug andor vent the lines off of the carb. There are two hoses. One on each side of the carb. The hoses are also different sizes. I don't know what hose to plug or what hose to vent. Plug both, one or what. Also what are the other hoses to vent, Just for the others reading this forum.

I JUST DID MY 05 RUBICON. THE TWO ON THE SIDE OF THE CARB YOU HAVE GOT TO VENT. THERE IS A DRAIN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CARB. IT HAS A ONE WAY VALVE BUT YOU CANT TRUST IT. THIS ONE YOU PLUG. ALSO VENT YOUR DIFFS, COOLING FAN AND REAR BRAKES. I THINK THATS ALL.

I guess I will do this. I tried to plug each seperatly and run it down the street. It seemed to run fine. I did a brute force and pluged the vents and took it for a rip and it backfired almost instantly. It was easy to tell right away. I put on the triangle snorkel kit and it never said anything about the carb vents, so I am trouble shooti9ng this before i go out. Where did you run the vents too? If you put it into the intake snorkle will the vaccume cause another problem or will it be ok?

I THOUGHT ABOUT RUNING MY VENT INTO MY SNORKLE TOO BUT IF YOU PUT YOUR HAND IN FRONT OF THE SNORKLE AND REV YOUR ENGINE, ITS MAKING ALOT OF VACUUM. I DONT KNOW IF IT WOULD WORK BUT I KINDA THINK NOT.
I'VE HAD MINE OUT A COUPLE OF TIMES SINCE I PUT THE SNORKEL ON. WORKS GOOD BUT I THINK I WILL HAVE TO JET MY CARB. I SHECK MY PLUG LAST NIGHT AND IT'S RUNNING ALITTLE RICH.

I had a snorkel that i ran the vents to. The vents i ran to it were the fan the rear diff. the front diff. and the rear brakes. If you run the 2 carb vents to yours snorkel it will create a vAacuum and not work. Why? I dunno this is just what i was told.
