Ive come up with a plan for my breather now anyways, simple and requires no drilling...

weld up the 1/4" hole in the bottom of the tube that used to be the breather and then remove the drain plug which is now on top and fit a breather into that. im sure a pipe fitting with a baffle welded into it and a little K&N or such on it should look nice and will almost be hidden under the seat anyway.

dont know where the drain plug is on the reliant but with my axle upside down its right in the middle on top of the diff casing

ah right how do you drain the oil on a reliant diff then? split it or remove it then use the filler plug as a drain?

Mines started to leak out the little hole in the axle tube, question is is it just a case of checking oil every weekend and topping up as I don't want to strip it till later in the year?
Is it possible to drill a very small hole in the case with it assembled with a vacuum sucking the swarf away ... ( stands by for torrent of abuse )

If the hole is in the bottom of the axel tube, weld it up and drill one from the top down. It's a breather hole.
