i notcied starter is a bitch to remove with the hoses in the way

It's a canister type of filter. Located on the ft of the eng, toward the top, to the right of the intake. It has a plastic or metal cap with a 32mm (1 1/4") hex fitting on it. Remove the cap and the filter will come out with it. Be sure the little O-ring seal on the pointy end comes out also.
