Fitting Intake Manifold Tips
To gain access to the manifold, we will remove the pull assembly, coil and fuel tank.
Crack seen here in the wall of the intake manifold pipe. I have also seen the metal pull assembly come loose and wear through the top of the manifold pipe.
This damage will cause surging, the fix - replace manifold pipe.
Carburetor removed as per guide.
Remove bolt at the front and two at rear either side of the metal pull assembly cover.
Pull assembly pulls straight up, and dipstick comes with it.
No need to remove the cable attached to the front of the cover, just place the assembly out of your way.
Remove the coil and governor flap by removing these two bolts. No need to remove the control wire attached, just set the whole unit to the side.
Blow away any dirt from the manifold. Remove both bolts from intake manifold.
Remove manifold and gasket. There are a few different types of manifold fitted to this engine. Use your engine number to order the correct manifold, or remove yours and match it against the new part online.
