Mike - the primary symptom is a cruddy idle, probably with lots of 
stalling, especially when hot.  Retail for the big hose on my 200 is 
$48, but you can get it for much less.  Don't forget to replace the 
multi-port hose on top of the rocker arm, too, as it also turns to 
much and cracks.  Replacing them is just a few minutes' work with a 
screwdriver, but do it when the engine is cold....they're right 
behind the fan.
