Yeah the dryer duct thing is inside the air (I wanna say filter, cause thats what should be in there, right?) box, but there is no filter.
Ive never heard of an engine with no air filter, but whoever had this bike (one owner) was kind of an idiot I think. No preventive maintenence was done, and the air pump and tool kit are missing.
plus its just in disrepair generally. But ill get it back in shape.
So that brings me to my next question:
Where do you guys go for parts? Are moped tune-up parts (filters, etc.) available at retail anywhere like auto zone,napa, or similar places?
I want to get the air filter in place asap, and I will probably get the fuel filter tonight, but where to go for the air filter? assuming it should have one.
Thanks for clearing up the petcock thing. Although it is a plastic hose stickin up out of it and not a metal one, the thing that was confusing me was that I thought the plug was supposed to be closed off all the way, so as no to allow any fuel through. thanks again. that reminds me, I forgot to set it to "off" when I parked it. is that bad? the carb does not leak at all. There is still a slow leak in the petcock off position, which Im assuming is caused by the metal where the part that turns (the thing you turn to change from on to off to res.) sits into the body of the petcock. you know, where the three holes are its corroded out a little. Should I be concerned about this?
Im mainly concerned with getting the filters on right now though.
