chipper vac

I have a sears walk behind chipper-vac model 987799610 and I cannot find the manual. It starts but dies out right away. I do not know how to to get the air filter off or change the oil, which I suspect is the problem. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
Thank you,

The model number of the engine would help.

If you don't know how to remove the air filter or change the oil, you should probably hire someone who knows a bit more to get it running.

Probably just needs the carb and fuel system cleaned and some fresh fuel.

I have an MTD and I emptied the gas tank then tipped the vac on it's side to drain the oil out the fill neck.

RE: chipper vac

thanks to everyone for the tips. I found the manual and took off the air filter and replaced it with a new one and it is working fine.
