Swapping over to the Genset engine, the Mule Crankcase breather tube is pretty shot up, flat spots and darn near smashed in one area. picture doesn't do justice. I would like to replace it with a NOS tube. It was rather hard to duplicate that compound bend with my tube bender, so in this case, I would rather get a new tube if one is out there? The fitting to the crankcase looks like it will be buried and rather hard to get to once all the components and shrouds are on?

In the manual and several fotos it appears to be clocked at 45 degrees to the left. I presume one should tighten the crankcase side first? Does the other end connect to the air cleaner shutoff valve?

To see it, I have to do some disassembly, which I am not going to do now due to the weather
