To change the air filter in your garden tractor, follow these simple steps:
1. Turn off the engine and allow it to cool down completely before attempting to change the air filter.
2. Locate the air filter housing on the engine. This can usually be found on the side or top of the engine and is covered by a plastic or metal housing.
3. Remove the air filter housing cover by unscrewing any bolts or latches holding it in place.
4. Carefully remove the old air filter and dispose of it properly.
5. Clean the inside of the air filter housing with a clean rag to remove any dirt or debris.
6. Install the new air filter by placing it into the housing with the pleated side facing outward. Make sure it fits snugly and securely.
7. Replace the air filter housing cover and secure it with any bolts or latches that were removed.
8. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes to ensure that the new air filter is working properly.
It’s recommended to change your garden tractor’s air filter every 25 hours of use or at least once per mowing season to keep it running smoothly.
What type of air filter should I use in my garden tractor?
It’s recommended to use a high-quality paper or foam air filter in your garden tractor. These types of filters are effective at trapping dirt, dust, and other debris that can damage your engine.
A paper filter is typically more durable and can last longer than a foam filter, but it also requires more maintenance.
Foam filters are usually easier to clean and can be reused multiple times, but they may need to be replaced more frequently.
Ultimately, the type of air filter you choose will depend on your personal preference and the specific requirements of your garden tractor’s engine.
