To remove a carburetor, first turn the fuel petcock off if it has an "off" positon. Then take the air cleaner cover, air filter, and air cleaner backing plate off. Loosen the adjustment on the throttle and idle cables (the two cables). Loosen the nut on the enricher cable and allow it to come out of it's bracket. Disconnect the fuel line and the vacuum line for the VOES and the petcock. Now, rock the carb side to side and pull it out of the carburetor intake seal and guide the enricher cable out. When you replace the carb, always use a new carburetor intake seal to prevent vacuum leaks.

Good Luck
