Marlin - are you up late or up early??? Glad Vincent really confirmed what I was seeing. The 16hp parts are getting hard to find and that means expensive too.

Kraig - Oh Great One Keeper of the Photos - thanks for posting the pic of the bolt ID details.

Richard W - I think it's common for those screws that hold the air cleaner cover, to strip out over time. I've had a few of the Quiet Lines that had the holes in the carb tapped slightly larger and studs inserted so you can use nuts to hold the air cleaner cover. That way you don't have to use screws and worry about stripping the threads.

Today I took the snow thrower off of one of the 1450ís and then began to do the spring maintenance. While the oil was draining I began to take the air filter cover off. When I touched the nut for the whole air cleaner assembly it began to move (not good). I removed the outer cover and found the holes for the three retaining screws on the filter backing plate wallered out. Worse yet, ONE OF THE SCREWS WAS MISSING. After looking around thinking it might have dropped out, and not finding it, I began to disassemble and remove the carb. Below is what I found. Further investigation, I found two of the screw holes were stripped. I will now have to install Heli-Coil inserts to fix the carb.

missing screw

Luckily after removing the screw and putting most of it back together, left off the air cleaner assembly, it ran fine.

Darn archive bug! :-) ---> Is the kit for mounting a "Original" timed deck on a 70 a hard to find item? Includes the special Mule drive, the side brackets and engine pulley for crank. I don't know the serial number of the 70 unfortunately, as the rearend was MIA.
