In the process of finishing up the rebuild on my MF8 this morning, after bolting the hood back on the air cleaner on the chinese clone engine (predator) wont let the hood close all the way. I have this engine in until I have more time to get a tecumseh I have on my shelf running and will put back in the tractor. I dont want to cut the hood so it will close, has anyone made or purchased an aftermarket air filter that takes up less room than the bulky plastic box that comes with these engines? Here are some pictures; with the filter on the engine and with the filter off .
