4. Air cleaner service
A dirty air cleaner
will restrict
air flow to the carburetor.
If you operate
the
tractor
in very dusty
areas,
clean the air cleaner
more often than specified
in the MAINTENANCE
SCHEDULE.
Operating
the engine
without
the air cleaner
will cause rapid engine
wear.
1. Open the engine
hood.
2. Remove
the wing
nuts and remove
the air cleaner
cover.
Remove
the
elements
and separate
them.
Carefully
check both elements
for holes or
tears
and replace
if damaged.
NOTE:
Be sure to remove
the foam element
from the air cleaner
cover
so that you can inspect
both
sides.
.
3. Foam element:
Clean in warm,
soapy
water,
rinse, and dry thoroughly.
Or, clean in nonflammable
solvent
and dry.
Dip the element
in clean engine
oil, then squeeze
out all excess
oil. The
engine
will smoke
when
started
if too much oil is left in the foam.
w
Using gasoline
or flammable
solvent
to clean the filter element
can cause
a fire or explosion.
Use only
soapy
water
or nonflammable
solvent.
4. Paper
element:
Tap the element
several
times
on a hard surface
to
remove
loose dirt, or blow
low pressure
(30 psi or less) compressed
air
through
the filter
from the inside.
Do not try to brush off dirt. Brushing
will force
dirt into the fibers.
