If you have not done so already follow the procedure in the repair manual on adjusting the choke, after that let the engine fully warm up into the normal zone slowly turning the choke off to keep the RPMs at 1,100 rpms, once the engine is warmed up into the normal zone and the choke is all the way off then adjust the idle knob to set it at 1,100 rpms.

If you still can't keep the idle at a steady 1,100 check the couplers between the bottom of carbs and the intake tubes and the couplers for the air snorkel above the carbs that they are not out of place and the clamps are on tight.

You do not need to remove the tank to get the choke cables out of the sides of the carbs you will just need to raise it up a couple of inches, remove the two bolts on the front of the tank and loosen the one at the back and then it should raise up. There is also a vent tube on the bottom front left hand side of that tank that you may need to remove in order to raise the tank up.

The filter is your basic tube with two male connectors on each end, any filter that fits should work I would get something made out of plastic that you can see through so that if you are having a no-start situation you can see if there is any fuel in the filter or not.

I would not get one made from glass, I had one in a car I had once it cracked open and sprayed gas all over the engine compartment, why my car didn't burst into flames is beyond me guess I was lucky that day.
