I have a 1983 Honda Express NC50, and I'm cleaning the air filter. I basically just soaked the element in gasoline, gently scrubbed it with itself like I was washing unmentionables, sprayed/rinsed it with water, squeezed out as much water as I could, and let it dry all the way, and then repeated the gasoline process. Before I put it back in, I have two questions:
1. Am I doing something horribly wrong? Is this going to destroy my engine somehow? Or is there a better way to get it cleaner?
2. When I oil the element, should I just use regular two-stroke oil or what? Someone recommended that I don't use oil at all, is this advisable? Why or why not?
