Yard Man MTD Snow King 5.5 HP Oil Leak

I have a '97 Tecumseh 5.5 HP OHV Snow King snow blower that is leaking oil from this rubber tube. It looks like the tube comes off the OHV. I am wondering why this tube is dripping oil constantly. Did this tube come off something? Model number is E623D.

This can be caused by 2 things, too much oil in the crankcase, or a blow head gasket causing pressure to build up in the crankcase.
