fuel line (18) from the fuel tank into the fuel filter (13) and carburetor (17). The suction created by engine operation draws
the fuel and air mixture from the carburetor (17) into the intake manifold (2) and cylinder combustion chambers, where it is
ignited and converted into a mechanical force. The carburetor is the updraft type and has an oil-bath air cleaner. The air
cleaner is attached to the carburetor body by a clamping elbow (21) and clamping elbow screw (22).
