    I haven't opened it up yet, but this may be the reason for the stretched chain.

    Kind of hard to see but upper right, near center. Breather tube no hose. Is that normal? I was thinking it had a hose. I went through some pretty deep water on that flooding we had prior to harvey.

    I don't remember mine having a hose either. That is why I suggest adding one to the tcase and linking it to the one on the tranny

    It's pretty high up, but if you brave the water it's a good idea. Would running the hose and attaching it to my snorkel be a good or bad idea?

    My philosophy on that is that the breather hoses, all of them need to be good for the highest water you intend to cross. In my case, I will not go into anything deeper than the hood, because after that the computer will get wet and that is the end anyway
