Hey Doug, We have a small clear hose that fell off the front

Customer Question

Hey Doug,
We have a small clear hose that fell off the front of our Deere 345 riding mower. It looks like it goes on the carb but we are not sure. ? The mower is losing power when you turn the mower deck on and start cutting and almost always stalls out. Any ideas?

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! What is the inside diameter of the tube? Is it over a foot long? If it is about 1/4 inch and over a foot long, it is the radiator tube, that mounts next to the radiator cap, on the neck for a drain tube for radiator overflow. If it is small 1/8 inch short hose, it would be carburetor drain tube.
