Default Check valve required for O.S. 55hz?

Hi, I have a Kraken 580 with an O.S. 55hz (non regulated) installed
Does this motor required the O.S. check valve to be installed on the line between the muffler and the tank pressure nipple?
Appreciate any input.

Thanks

You only need the check valve for the regulated version.

No. The line from the muffler nipple goes direct to the tank's vent (tank pressure nipple).
