Yes that is the vent. It just slides on, no clamps necessary. At least, since that wasn't connected, you know the venting wasn't the problem.
Regarding your OP, no worries about a 'fuel system' that they can blame. There is none, unless you consider the fuel line and filter to be that system. Have you checked/cleaned the tiny inline filter at the carbs? I seriously doubt the shop did, especially considering they forgot to hook up the vent tube.
Is that the small filter inside the clear portion of tubing below the petcock? I compressed the hoses on either side and fuel seemed to be flowing freely there but I don't think it's been cleaned. As far as the shop reattaching the vent hose, I can't say they DIDN'T as I could just as easily imagine it came loose on its own with no clamp. This was the first time I noticed it. What function does reattaching it serve? If its as vital as assuring fuel supply to the carbs why is it just a slip on fit?
