    My room mate got this saw for doing some work for a guy. Saw is in excellent condition, and after I cleaned out the air filter for him I asked that he blow out the carb area (with light pressure). I see him blasting air at full force and this tube with wire wrapped screws in each end come flying out...where did it come from? Royals saw tube piece.jpg

    Where do I find a picture of exactly how it hooks up to the tank vent?

    It goes on a little stub at the left of the air box. Should be pretty obvious unless it's broken off. Save the screws and use a new piece of hose to replace it.
    Needs to be there for the fuel tank to properly adjust for changing air pressure as the fuel gets used. The screws just keep it from leaking but it will still weep a little.

    I read on here somewhere, when you put the screw in the hose, you just shove it in so it leaves room for air to get around the threads, if you screw it in, it might not breathe.

    If the vent line broke off like that, the other hoses are probably in bad shape as well. Proceed carefully if you plan on running the saw.
