Jonsered Chainsaw Repair

I'm trying to repair a broken part on a neighbor's chainsaw. I'm going to have to weld a broken piece back onto the cast aluminum housing.

My question is how do I get the carburator off?

The carb. seems to be held onto the cyl. with a rubber boot. This boot is held onto the cyl. intake with a tiny piece of wire wrapped around the rubber boot to colapse the boot onto the intake. Kind of like a hose clamp.

Do I cut the wire and plan on replacing it during re-assembly? It's awfully hard to get down in there to work.

Oh man - what did I get myself into?

Well, I tried to post a picture here but I was not very successful.

Hello Bald Eagle!

Sorry I haven't gotten to this question sooner. My modem went bad and I couldn't get online for a while.

See if you can wiggle and pull enough to get the carb out...just don't tear the boot. If the wire is twisted together, then cutting it is probably the only way to get it off.
