So, i pulled the gas tank off today and found a hose on the bottom of the tank by the petcock plugged with a screw. there is another that is not plugged and is attached at the other end to the top of the carbs. haynes manual calls it an air hose? kind of a generic name. should these have been connected or is it a coincidence that theyre next to one another?
my gas tank doesnt hold a vacuum if thats any help, and i am running rich and idling funny. i really hope this fixes it.

Those are BOTH vents and should be open to air, NOT PLUGGED.

Think of it like the air VENT cap on any can of gasoline. Try pouring the gasoline out with the vent closed, then with the vent opened. Or a bottle pourer that you see stuck in liquor bottles in the bar. The bartender holds his finger over the vent hole to stop the flow of alcohol into your appletini.
