Putting the machine back together after replacing water pump seals. Any idea if this pipe should be free like this or am I missing something?!? thanks

Goes on the back side of the fuel tap. Pull it off the brass connector where it currently is. Connect the other end to the back side of the fuel tap (you'll need to lift the tank to access it) Then slide it back onto the current location on the bass connector.

You won't get far without it connected either, it's the vacuum hose for the fuel tap. Check there are no splits in the end as the rubber does go hard with age, you can get away with trimming off the end.
