  • DO NOT make any adjustments to the generator without first stopping the engine and disconnecting the spark plug wire.
  • Burns from hot parts — let the engine cool completely before touching hot parts.

  2. Release the upper and lower wire clips on the cover and remove it.
  3. Remove the foam filter element and plastic grid from the air filter box.
