Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Everything is fine. That will not hurt anything if you accidently did not screw it back together. About the worst that can happen is it can scratch the lower cowl with the hose fitting flapping in the breeze, but it will not hurt the engine at all.
Did you have any other questions about this or were you just looking for a little peace of mind?
