Briggs & Stratton repair

Any B&S small engine repair guys here?
I am replacing connecting rods in my vertical shaft B&S v-twin engine. There is an oil supply tube that goes from the center of the spin-on oil filter to the crankshaft bearing where it supplies oil through the crankshaft to the connecting rods. This supply tube is loose in my engine (can be moved side to side). Is this normal or might this be the cause of my connecting rod failure? Looks like it would loose oil pressure on both ends of the tube. There is no mention of checking this tube in my repair manual.

Briggs & Stratton repair

if the "tube ur talking about led oil to the connecting rod and it lost pressure and no oil was getting to it it could possibly cause it if theres any visible bolts or screws tighten them maybe that will work
