Done the CCV reroute

Per another user on here, I done the ccv mod using a 3/4" pipe plug, 10' of 1" hose and two hose clamps.

Rotated the ccv fittings around and clamped the 1" hose to the fitting that goes in the intake Routed hose around steering column and along frame and secured with zip ties. Put the 3/4" pipe plug in the hole in the intake and clamped in place. Quick, easy, simple, and above all, cheap.

I read about most of the ways guys were doing it and this one just seemed to make the most sense to me. The 10' hose takes it almost to the back of the cab on a cc, so we will see if there is any smell or not. If so, I may just extend the hose a bit, and if that doesn't work, we'll go another route.

Thanks to the org for being such a great resource.

So, you are venting to atmosphere, correct?

Do you notice any difference in smell?

That is correct.

I just got finished. The next couple of days will tell on the smell but I don't anticipate any.

Well, just to add to your thread a bit...

I did the same with mine a while back. I vented to atmosphere. I have found NO residue on the driveway or any where else that I park the truck. Also, I have not noticed additional smells coming from the truck. The only additional smell I got was from when I did the EGR delete. The exhaust has a much more noticeable diesel smell to it after that. At least it did on my truck.

Then you are the reason I chose to do it this way. I have been researching for the last few weeks on 3 different forums, so instead of searching for who had done it, I just made the general disclaimer.

I just used a hose clamp on the pipe plug and the 1" hose.

Unless dieselmatt has some pics, I don't have any. I could probably scare some up later if he doesn't already have some.

I used a 1" expandable freeze plug with a little black silicone for my plug and 3/4 hose for the drain. Works good.

In this pic, you can just barely see the bolt, washer and silicone washer/grommet that I used. I used another washer on the bottom and a nut and tightened it down sandwiching the silicone washer/grommet in between. I don't think I have anything better than that unfortunately.
