Default Pegasus 240 Questions

I have recently acquired a Pegasus 240 that had been in someone's collection for a while. There is a piece of fuel tubing that is connected on one end to the breather nipple, and the drain nipple on the other end. Is this the way that it is intended to run?

Also, what should I do about the pressure line from the tank? Should I just leave it open like I would with a pumped engine?

The drain nipple is usually blocked during regular running and the breather nipple is always left open. There is no pressure supply to the tank with the multi-cylinder engines. You have two lines to the tank: one for fuel to the carb, and one to vent to the atmosphere.
