I know that most of the users on this forum probably don't have experience with these mud-style motors, but I figure most of the engine gurus here have seen many styles of motors, and prob a few of these B&S lawnmotor types. I noticed this hose coming out of what seems to be the valve cover and suspected it might have come off of something. A user on another forum said it was the Crank Case Vent tube. There is a hole near the back of the air filter housing but the tube creases when angled back into it, so that can't be where it goes. I dont see any place where this tube could possibly go and I was wondering if it is supposed to be loose like this. The motor seemed to run strong today before I noticed it, so I assume its OK, but I didn't want to damage the motor and have it die on me in the middle of nowhere or have to replace the powerhead in a couple of months. Thanks!
