How do you adjust air fuel mixture?
Turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to sound rough.
- Tightening the screw weakens the air and fuel mixture and decreases the amount of fuel flowing to the engine.
- Tightening the screw is also called making the fuel mixture leaner, which lowers the RPMs at which the engine idles.
How do I know if my carburetor is too rich or lean?
Q: How Do You Tell if a Carburetor Is Rich or Lean? A: One way to tell for sure is by “reading” the spark plugs. If the plug tip is white, the mixture is lean. If it’s brown or black, it’s rich.

Does main jet affect idle?
The main jet does not effect the jetting for starting and idling. It plays no part on low RPM or mid RPM jetting either. The main jet is very important to your machines overall tuning, but should never be over emphasized at the expense of needle tuning or other facets of your carburetion tuning.
How do you adjust a high and low carburetor?
Locate the two fuel-adjustment screws on the side of the carburetor. One will be labeled “Hi” and the other “Lo.” The “Hi” screw regulates the engine at full throttle and the “Lo” regulates the fuel when the engine is idling.
How do you adjust H and L screws on a carburetor?
Set the idle speed screw(not L or H) so it is just able to idle by itself. This screw will have a “stop” it rests against. Now turn the L screw out until in decreases in rpm and then back in(very slowly) until it is at peak rpm. Adjust the H screw once more as above and it should be a very serviceable 2 stroke.
How do you adjust a carburetor on a diaphragm?

What causes a small engine to rev up and down?
A lawnmower that hunts and surges may be experiencing something as simple as an airflow issue. If the air that the engine requires to run is blocked, especially sporadically, it can cause the engine to slow down. When the blockage moves or clears, the engine may suddenly rev up in response.
