Question Carb question

After reading thru the verses on pote4ntial causes of loss of power, I started checking everything, elect connections, ground wire, vent hoses, etc. After the gas tank came off, I was looking around for the one vent line that people say to 45 so it doesn't bottom out and i came across this t-connector in between my carbs that looks like it should have a hose on it, but I'm not sure what it is or where it should go and would it cause an acceleration issue....any thoughts?

That T is the one that should have the vent hose on it that goes into the right ear.

That's what I thought. I took the right ear off but I didn't see a hole for it to go into... is that vacuum line needed, or can i just plug it?

its not a vacuum line, its a breather line... yes you need it. there isn't a hole per say in the right ear for a hose, but more of a formed tube with a slit in it.

add the tube... even when we remove he ears, we still run the tube.. just relocated to the bottom of the fuel tank or into the frame... any where out of the wind
