Pull Srart shroud removal?

Posted by bob44 (My Page) on

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?
thanks, Bob

Carbs are usually held in place by two bolts/nuts but maybe an additional bolt and bracket. I haven't run into a shroud removal that required removing the carb. The carb should slide off the two studs but make careful notes on the way the governor linkages and springs go, including the direction the ends of the links go into the carb and governor lever. Carb might be stuck to the engine by the paper gasket between the carb and engine.

One pic shows some screws around the black part of the starter, with a black, flat thing sticking out of it. Is that the starter? Removing the screws/bolts should allow you to remove the black thing, so you can fix the rope. I wouldn't think you would have tto remove that big rusty pot, or whatever it is, just to replace the rope. And, if you aren't mechanically inclined, take it to a shop to be fixed!

Problem has been solved. Here is a another pic. Carb had to be loosen and pulled away from engine. The bump - out on the left side of shroud is covering the armature behind it.
Once the carb is pulled out, then the shroud can removed. There are three bolts that hold the shroud to the engine. All three are in clear view. No bolts on the shroud near the carb.
thanks,Bob
