kawasaki FR730V-DS04 fuel line or what?

While doing a tune up (the first I've ever tried to do myself) on my Husqvarna GTH24V52LS with above engine, I've noticed that the tube running alongside the fuel line had been cut & at some point was taped back together with electrical tape, which is now unraveled.  Does a small engine have a vacuum line?
In looking at schematics & parts diagrams, I can't determine what this line is for. I've never worked on engines before & know just enough to be dangerous. Last year I successfully replaced the drive & mower deck belts and replaced an idler pulley. This year I will have to install a new clutch & have to rely entirely on manuals to complete the task.  I'm aware that anyone reading this will know the answer.
Thank you kindly.

Yes they have a vacuum line, PCV hose, and if Calif EPA certified a fuel tank vent line. You need to where the is going to on both ends.
 
You also change the clutch. Are referring to the PTO or the drive as the drive have no physical clutch to change just belt and idler pulleys plus springs that are not normally changed unless broken.

Thank you.
Yes, I'm going to attempt replacing the PTO electric clutch.  
Regarding the air line, where should it be going to?  Do you know where I can get further information on doing repairs? I only  have the manuals & parts lists, which don't give detailed instructions on engine repairs.

They are hard to change as long you have the right tools. Just got to remember that the anti rotation device must in place or you will rip the wires out of the clutch.
 
As far as the service manual for the Kawasaki engine drop me PM (private message) with your email address and I'll send a copy of the one I have here. 3.5 megs file size.
