It is an overflow tube. If the carburetor gets turned upside down the fuel will drain out of it. Also if the carburetor is flooding it will run out of this tube as well. It is a safety feature on certain engines.
I hope this answers your question.

Try spaying WD40 in cylinder, pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Ensure oil breather hose is connected to back of air cleaner. Spray down hose with a little carb cleaner. Ensure oil is full, 30w oil. All engines have a low oil cutoff. Use Stabile in gas always!

Valve breather shots out oil when engine is running

I do not think this is a gasket issue, if the machine has beed tipped up oil will travel up the breather tube and enter the air filter case, over filling will also cause this, if its been tipped it will clear if you run it for a time with the filter off.

I have a Toro Proline walk behind . Problems with the self propel

I suspect the drive belt, not the Hydro. Especially if the drive belt was never replaced. The belts are known to stretch and wear out over time. It's a cheap part.
