Can you ID this part? Picture was taken from the front of the mower looking back, part is actually on the top right of engine.

Sometimes people disconnect that hose if the engine is pushing out oil. I'm going to have a look at the diagrams on JDParts.

Going through the diagram, the only thing I see that looks like this thing is the governor.

The hose is part 13 in the first diagram. The breather(part 32) is where you can see the hose connected in your picture. From pictures I've seen of the engine in the past I think it attaches to part 19 in the second diagram. If you remove the air cleaner assy. you should see a port where it would connect. It could have rotted off over time and was just hanging down. Notice the u shape of the hose in the diagram. It should go pretty much horizontal to connect under the breather.

Ive got my muffler welded all back up and it doesnt leak anymore. Even put new spark plugs in and can hear the difference. The old ones were very black with carbon build up but not wet with oil or gas. Should pick up my valve cover gaskets monday so they wont leak anymore.
Just about got this thing back into shape.
