???? I don't know what tube you are talking about. My breather fits fine. It is near the dipstick for the oil. If it is teh tube up front, i just took taht out and threw it away, and put the breather in there. Maybe someone else can help you understand better. Good luck.
You don't need to put an air breather on it if its what i think it is... if its the hose from the lower back part of the box about guestamate of 2 inches or so.. that just throws out heat.. you don't need a breather cause it doesn't suck in air it throws it out. easiest way to check is to put hand by opening and rev the engine.. if it sucks in air.. put a breather.. if its what i'm talking about an throws out air.. just leave it alone
That hose is the vacume pump breather. It helps with the crank case pressure. you do not have to place a filter on it. In fact next time your there take the pump out and throw it as far as you can. POS! Just remember to put a freeze plug in its place!
Its like a little metal disk that will block anything from going into the head. You get them at the auto parts store for like a $1. You just have to make shure to have the right size. They press in, no big thing!
The lower tube ur talking about that goes into the back of the engine is the "Preheat" hose. send hot air to the airbox so engine will heat up faster cold days i assume. its like a 2in silver hose. (well mine was silver) take this off. no need for it.
EDIT: also for the breather filter. take that silly A$$ hose off where it goes into the air pump. slap the breather filter right on there. make sure its on there nice and snug and tight'n that baby right up!
