fuel smell in air filter
Okay, I havent posted here in while, mostly lurking. Learned a lot from reading here, and have finally worked up my nerve to take apart and clean the carbs.
My 99 has been running real rough thru the summer, needs full choke to run, doesnt want to start, etc. All the advice I've been getting tells me to clean the carbs and jets. So, I've never done it before, and I am chicken, so its taken me months to say, "what the hell?" I figure the worst thats gonna happen is I lose a part or have to pay someone else to put it back together. Learn by doing, right?
On my 3rd cup of coffee this morning, I removed the right side air cover, and noticed that not only did it smell like fuel, but it was wet and the foam filter cover thing was falling apart. All little wet fuel- soaked pieces.
I read something about that around here, and I will look for it, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I reeeeally dont want to take off the carb if I dont have to.....
