Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
The air intake is normally covered on the side of the engine on these machines. There will be no air filter due to the nature of time that the machine is being used there is normally no dust or dirt conditions therefore the is no need for a filter. If you add a filter it can cause carburetor icing issues due to moisture that is created when you pull cold air through the filter into a warm or hot carburetor.
I hope that this helps you. If you need additional assistance feel free to ask.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
