Pull Srart shroud removal?
I am trying to remove the pull start shroud to upgrade the paint on the shroud. I have all bolts removed from shroud. In removing, left side of shroud does not clear carb. Must the carb be removed to make the shroud clear? If carb needs to be removed, how is that done? I have already removed the air cleaner assembly and metal mounting bracket for air cleaner.
The two nuts holding a.c. bracket have also been removed that are on the threaded studs that go thru carb body. Carb and spacer to engine are not loose at this point. I tried to to push and pry a little, but carb is still tight. After the two front nuts have been removed, does the carb just slide forward on the two brass colored studs?
