Ok, I'm sure I'll the prize for the stupid question of the week....but how does the air filter housing come off? I've searched the forum, and I looked in the service manual.....it seems as if all I need to do is remove the center bolt and the big egg shaped metal piece will come off revealing the air filter.
But it doesn't come off. The bottom is loose, I can stick my fingers into the bottom and feel something rattling around in there, and now the long bolt won't screw in to anything.
If I take off the 2 bolts at the top and the one at the bottom, it still does not come off. I can't see how to access the clamp that must hold it to the carb
I'm feeling pretty stupid....as I just finished servicing the steering head bearings...but I can't figure this out. thanks in advance....
