hi guys i bought a 917 guy rebuilt the engine and it runs good but it is sucking the oil up through the carb ive got a air cleaner on it but there is no top plate that goes over the top of the filter would that cause it to pull the oil out or is it something else wrong i just took a pic of it.

Your breather assembly is toast. This is the poppet style using a red plastic umbrella looking valve. That is the red pieces you see. Kohler has an upgrade kit that changes that to a metal reed style breather valve. Are you missing the oil screen/diffuser also? It looks like steel wool. The Kohler part no for the breather upgrade kit is: 52 035 02-S Just a note Ron, the missing bolt is the exhaust manifold. :I

Air Cleaner cover: Worst case drill a hole in the center of a round sheet metal plate, or the top from a metal coffee can...and place on top and hold down with a wing nut.
