All lawnmowers have air filters. Most snow blowers do not. Except for
early Craftsman Eager 1 engines, most lawn mowers use an oiled foam
filter in the air intake box - some fasten with a screw into the carb,
and some have a clip-on plastic lid.
I found the air filter. It is right where I thought it was, but my
neighbor told me that I don't want to mess around in that area. LOL
I googled youtube and there was a guy cleaning an air filter on a Murray
lawnmower with a Briggs & Stratton motor.
I have a paper filter by the way, and it was filthy.
One thing you could try is to go to Google Images (
http://images.google.com/ ) and do a search for "lawn mower air filter" or
"lawn mower air filter location" etc. and see if one of the images there
shows the location of your air filter.
Also, if you post the lawn mower model number etc., maybe someone here has
the same or similar model and can identify where the filter is located on
Thank you Ron. I googled youtube and found a man changing an air filter
on a Murray lawnmower with a Briggs & Stratton engine. It was a piece
of cake. I was hoping for a foam filter, but mine is paper.
