How to change strainer screen in carb?

Tue Jun 08, 2004 12:15 pm

Hi all,

I am currently rebuilding the IH carb that was on my cub. I have it all taken apart, and the warpage has been corrected according to Lurker Carl's instructions. It has also been bathed in carb cleaner. The only thing I have been pondering is the removal and replacement of the strainer screen. Does it just push out? It seems like I will destroy it. Does the new one just push in? Again, it seems too frail to squeeze into that little area without bending or breaking. I am just making sure, before I go ahead and regret not asking. Tips are appreciated.

I just pushed mine out with a bent nail - it just popped out.

To put the new one in, I set it in place and use a piece of copper fuel line to gently pop it in. Not too bad.
