TEA20 air cleaner removal

On my TEA there is a metal tube running from the air cleaner down to the carb. Good idea that it is metal, it passes close by the exhaust discharge. The issue is that this tube, connected at both ends by clamps on a rubber connector is tough to remove until the air cleaner or the carb have been removed leaving one end free.

It might be easier to remove the air cleaner end, and indeed the left side mounting bolt is quite easily reached with a socket on an extension, but the right side bolt is more difficult, hidden behind the air tube. You can get at it incrementally with an open end wrench but it takes time and it's pretty easy to drop the bolt when getting the thread started.

Has anyone found a workaround that makes it easy to remove the connecting tube without removing either end? Maybe I am just using the wrong technique to get it off?

Thanks, Tom H. Unfortunately it seems to be a rule of life that we beginners end up repeating things until we develop enough experience, knowledge and careful conscientiousness to do it right the first time.

If you need to be removing the tube often you may want to start with new rubber hoses, add a coating of lubricant inside the hose so that it can easily travel up the metal pipe when the clamps are released. Your pipe should become easier to take on and off.

I think I have a way around this - if the rubber connector at the air end is in good condition (mine is badly rotted) then if the air tube is smooth the connector can slide down completely over the air tube. This leaves a gap that allows the air cleaner to go on both sides with the socket wrench and subsequently the air tube installed and the connector slid back up into position. Need new rubber connector air hose to try it out. It needs a bit of cooperation from the oil breather tube but I think is manageable.

Today's Featured Article - What Oil Should I Use? - by Francis Robinson. I keep seein this question pop up over and over again in discussion groups all over the web. As with many things there are often several right answers and a few wrong ones. Some purist I'm sure will disagree to no end with what I will tell you but most of us out here in the real world don't really care do we ? Some of them only bring their noses down out of the air long enough to look down them anyway. If you are like me you are only doing this old tractor stuff because you enjoy it. You ...
