What does the filter housing look like? Metal 2 piece container on top of carb?

Replies don't cost anything. Can't help if you don't reply.

Am still curious about your filter setup!

Posting replies or answering our questions does not cost anything. It is also polite.

Attached is an image of the different air box housings. Only the bottom right has a paper element.

Which one is yours?
