I started my 72 with Amal 932s and factory air cleaner end paper filter this morning. It kicked back slightly before starting. I ran it for five minutes then shut it down, then noticed smoke from the side cover. I looked into the air cleaner and saw it glowing, then a small flame appear. I shot a small burst from my fire extinguisher into the air cleaner from each side and put it out. Has anyone experienced this with the stock setup before? I had the air slides down, which is unusual, but it was cold this morning. I’ll need to replace the filter and clean out the extinguisher powder before running it again. It could have been a lot worse.
