 Re: So that
A couple of months ago I heard the air cleaner rattling around while driving, so I got out, but the nut was missing. I found another one and put it on.

I never thought to look down the carburetor throat ...

 Re: So that
I'm assuming that's the wingnut that holds the air filter lid in place? How did it get in there?!

 Re: So that
especially when it's sopposed to be on the outside of the breather , unless the lid actually came off.

 Re: So that
Yes, the lid was very loose. It didn't fall off the top of the cleaner but was over about an inch to the side. It was probably bouncing around under there.

The original Nissan wing nut as I recall has a rubber base, and "stays" tight. I guess I could just use some lock-tite as it keeps getting loose, but I've ordered a new one from Nissan.

 Re: So that
The one that was on mine has a flat washer with rubber underneith it then the wingnut. The rubber acts as a lockwasher.Holds the tension.
