McCulloch String Trimmer

Hey gang, I've got a McCulloch MAC 2816 string trimmer, which seems to have lost it's air cleaner. I noticed that it looked funny, and after closer examination, I found no filter. No holder for a filter. Just a hole in the end of the engine. A scouring of the yard turned up nothing, but I have no idea when this happened.

This leads me to two questions:

1) Anyone have a picture or copy of a manual page showing what this puppy SHOULD look like?

2) Is there a source for the part(s) online?

Thanks!

McCulloch is piss poor to deal with and basically washed up .

I have had problems dealing with them to try to get a manual for my 320BV Blower Vacuum that my sister got at a garage sale for nothing. LOL.

I called them and I think I knew more about the machine than they did .

Yeah, I don't expect that I can get anything from McCulloch, since they refer everything to dealers - not that I'm opposed to that, but it's an air cleaner, for goodness sake.
I'm betting that someone on this forum can help.

I'm going to try again. Maybe I can get one of their dealers to help out and send me the diagram.

Under the premise of "I need the diagram to see which part I need to order"

Hello Ohm Boy!

I'll look in the scrap pile and see if I have one of those models. If so, I can describe it to you, or email you a pic.

That'd be highly appreciated, Cheese. (Funny, that's what my kids call me...well they really call me Dangerously Cheesy. I guess it's all those "dad jokes", eh?)
Anyway, thanks a lot, and I hope you can find one. I really need to see one of these in it's "natural" state.

Well, I have it all under control. Nothing to see here... move along... it's all OK.

Thanks for everyone's help - I found it. All is well back in Ohmsville.

Great! I did find a trimmer similar to yours, but I guess you don't need the pics now. Take care!
