The fuel strainer, located underneath the carburetor float bowl, contains a fine mesh screen through which the fuel is forced to pass, trapping bits of dirt and any water that find their way into the fuel system. The unit should be cleaned and flushed at 2,000 mile intervals unless more frequent cleaning is indicated by irregular carburetion.

To clean the strainer, turn off fuel supply, turn off lower knurled cap and clean strainer. Washers need not be replaced unless they are faulty. The cap is replaced fingertight.


The air cleaner consists of a back plate, filter element and cover, arranged so all air drawn into carburetor passes through the filter. A mesh element traps all air borne dust to keep it from entering carburetor and engine.
