the air cleaner on engine. Best adjustments made with
fuel tank 1/2 full.
Place governor speed control lever in "FAST" position.
Turn needle valve slowly in until engine misses
(clockwise - lean mixture) then turn it out slowly past
smooth operating point until engine runs unevenly (rich
mixture). Now turn needle valve to the midpoint between
rich and lean so the engine runs smoothly. Next, adjust
idle RPM. Rotate throttle counterclockwise and hold
against stop. Adjust idle speed adjusting screw to obtain
1750 RPM minimum. Release throttle - engine should
accelerate without hesitation or sputtering. If engine
does not accelerate properly, the carburetor should be
readjusted, usually to a slightly richer mixture.
