What is this second hose on my lawnmower carburetor?
There is the fuel inlet and that I understand, But there is a softer hose coming out of the top of the carburetor which leads to some kind of plastic deviceup to the rear of the flywheel. Hard to explain without a photo. Too late in the day for a photo.
This is a Tecumseh engine and a Yardman mower.

It's a crankcase vent to suck blowby back into the carb so it can be burned and not vented to the atmosphere

This is a gas pipe!

It is a return hose that allows fuel back into the gas tank. When you press the rubber primer bulb and the carbie fuel bowl is full, the float stops any more fuel going in.

The second hose goes to the crankcase PCV vent.
