Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
You will need to remove the cover in order to get starter fluid into the carburetor. There is no air filter on the machine so you don't have to worry about that. The intake is under that cover, it is a heater box that helps to preheat the air going into the carburetor in order to prevent carburetor icing.
