That's not the vent tube, its the overflow drain.

Google K&S brass tubing. The diameter can be flared out using a small drill bit (the back side) forced inside.

That looks like a late '74 to 75 Z1 carb bowl. You're not putting that on your '73 resto are you?
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

>>> "Is it leaking? "
The tube broke of the bottom of a carb, I want to fix so I can attach drain hose.

The 73 has original carbs and bowls.
I am building two more engines, where I started hole sawing pistons.
