Maybe it doesn't. I thought the drive would fill with oil faster with the vent out, than venting through the bottle.

I would "think" that you'd be pushing the air back up the line for a complete fill. Of course you would have to loosen the cap or things would be interesting.

[i] I currently have the IMCO rear cap, but this is for my "poker run" drive.



What I need is a bracket that will come off the mounting bolts.

You have it all wrong Cord. The BH IS the poker run drive. The bravo is in the truck just incase the poker run wins

You need to have some 4 3/4 studs made to work with the wing plate too

Cord you should have said useful links that web site has been like that for years why even bother

Here is the Alfster bracket I had had some of the first ones and they used some of my design ideas

dont think you can find a stonger one it uses the drive mounting bolts as well as the two cap mounting bolts works great

klaw-any idea how much that bracket was?

Air-thanks for posting. I was hoping you would. Am I correct in assuming that a bravo bracket won't clear the bh rear cover? Those two bolts shown above, don't even exist, right?

If you wanna call Latham they have (2) 800 #'s one is 1-800-422-RAMS ask to speak to Tommy he will answer ANY questions you have. Latham is pricey but you get what you pay for and if it comes from there it works!

You assume correctly. it will not clear the back cover on the BH drive.
