Is yours a rigid steel tube or a piece of lightweight flexible tube? If it's the flexible ducting, they're available in various diameters at any parts store.

It ducts warm air off the exhaust manifold to the air cleaner. This helps in cold weather. Probably no need to rush on that, this time of year.

If you have a leak you might need to change the exhaust gaskets ??:dontknow:

Have a Question? Not running a stock air cleaner is it ok to cap off the exhaust vent? I'm getting some fumes from the outlet.

It's just a sheet metal cover over the manifold to collect heat. If you have fumes, you have something leaking.

Check around the carb. by the fuel filter and fuel pump underneath. Also get a small propane torch and go around and see if the engine idle changes and the charcoal canister my be clogged.:dontknow:
