REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1 through 8

On carbureted models, the air cleaner is housed above the carburetor, and on fuel injected models, in a housing at the front of the vehicle. The recommended change interval for the air filter is 30,000 miles (48,300 km) under normal circumstances. Severe service requires more frequent changes.
