Drain most of the gasoline from the carburetor assembly and place it in a clean heavy-duty plastic bag to keep it clean until it is worked on or reinstalled.

CAUTION Cover the exposed manifold with shop rags or tape. This will prevent engine damage from small objects dropped undetected into the manifold.

7. While the carburetor is removed, examine the intake manifold on the cylinder head for any cracks or damage that would allow unfiltered air to enter the engine. Any damaged parts should be replaced.

8. Install by reversing these removal steps. Install a new manifold gasket. Adjust the throttle grip as described in Chapter Three.
