Hey folks,

I've been doing some work to my 1999 6x4 and noticed that there is a small outlet pipe that is coming out of the carb but doesn't have a hose hooked to it. When I looked at the parts diagram, it says a hose should be on there, but doesn't show me where it goes. When I cover the hole w/my finger when the engine is running, it tends to hesitate like it's flooding out. I'm not exactly sure of what this tube does, but I'm sure it should at least have a hose on it.

My question is: Does the hose connect to something or does it just hang to act as a drain for any excess fuel that may spill out of the carb bowl? The attached picture shows the tube that I'm referencing.

Also - my gator doesn't have an air restrictor indicator on it, even though the parts breakout shows it having one. This means yet again I have something that is not connected, so I'd like to at least close the open hole. Where does this air restrictor indicator connect to the air system?

Thanks!

my carb doesnt have the hose either. i bought a new carb it has the vent but has no hose (have not installed new carb since the machine has been running well after having adjusting old one). I believe the hose is simply a vent / overflow, mine has been running fine without it. i would be curious to find out if it is supposed to go somewhere or connect to something.

air restrictor indicator? I am not familiar with this, are you referencing the TM1518? can you share what page? might be optional, sometimes there is stuff in there that was not on our machines.
