Hi, this is John, and in this clip we will
be cleaning and replacing the air filter. Now, it’s always recommended to replace your
air filter every year, or at least clean it out. To locate your air filter, you first
want to locate your carburetor, and if you’re having a hard time locating your carburetor,
you want to find your gas tank, and any fuel line that might be going out of your gas tank,
is going to be going into your carburetor. Then you can just follow your carburetor, Best single stage snow blower
and typically there’s an air filter mounted to your carburetor. For this particular air
filter we just need to remove one of the screws on top of it, and that will let me remove
that air filter. Now when I open that up, I’m going to see a foam type filter inside,
and I can just peel that out of there. To clean the air filter, you just want to wash
it in warm soapy water,
and squeeze off any excess water. Next, you’re going to take a paper towel, and squeeze that
paper towel around that air filter to get any excess water out. After that were going
to add just a little bit of oil into the filter, and were going to work that oil all around
that filter, and then come back with a paper towel, to get any excess oil out. Now this
particular filter looks really bad actually, and you would want to replace it, but for
this demonstration I’m just going ahead and show you how to reinstall it. We?re just going
to take our air filter housing, and were going to set our cleaned air filter, or a new one
back in place with our cap, and put that back on our carburetor, and then just give it a
wiggle, and test it, make sure it’s on their securely.
