How to remove Flame Arrestor

My carburator has just recently been rebuilt and the engine now struggles to start cold, though once started it runs smoothly. I'm thinking either the fuel mixture is set too lean or the choke does not fully open the carb valve when pulled full out. I can easily set the fuel mix but to check the carb valve with choke on/off I need to remove the complete flame arrestor unit entirely, and there begs the question - how do you do that?

There is a screw on the side of the arrester where it clamps on the carb. Just loosen the screw and give the arrester a twist and it should come off.

When reinstalling only tighten the screw gently as you don't want to break off one of the "ears".
