I raised the hood to check the fuel and found this today on Turtle, my 108. Fortunately I haven't used him much lately.
It's been a very hot summer and I don't like running cubs above 90* much...it depends on the humidity. Had I run Turtle much things could have taken a bad turn I...
Did you remove/clean the main jet from the emulsion tube? It can be tricky and requires a proper fitting screwdriver. If it is "stuck" by all means don't try and force it too much. It doesn't take much to make it very difficult to remove by destroying the screwdriver slot. When I have...

I went to start the 149 this am for a little exercise and battery charging. When I turned the key it back fired with an attitude. I've never heard such a loud back fire. I knew immediately that it blew the spark plug right out of the head and sure enough, the spark plug along with the helicoil...
Those appear to be plastic hubcaps and if so they should pop off with some gentle persuasion with a pry bar. Once the caps are off the rest should be obvious as to how to remove the wheel. My guess would be a snap ring or "E" clip.
