For the Asin 2bbl try from closed position (close gently) open approx.
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 as a starting point. Then with a tachometer hooked up slowly and carefully adjust in either direction to obtain highest RPM.

SOURCE: I don't know where the air/fuel mixture screw is on my carb

There should be one screw (I'm assuming it's the Carter YF carburetor 1 barrel) that's by itself away from linkages etc, more to center at base of carb where it meets manifold, that is angled approx 45 degrees going in to base. That should be your mixture screw. What symptoms are you experiencing anyway?

I think the word carburetor and ford falcon was mentioned which used a mechanical fuel supplied system. check for a cracked fuel supply line from the fuel tank to the steel body supply line.

This problem does not seem to be the fuel pump. it appears to be an electrical problem in particular your ignition. Also check the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. if the computer cannot read how much air is coming in it will try to shut down.

What is the factory setting for the fuel mixture screw on a toyota 1.8 litre 2Y engine

most fuel mixture screws are set initially by turning it all the way in and then backing out 21/2 turns. This should allow start and idle and final adjustment can be done to fine tune it. Check that the idle solenoid is working as it will shut off the idle circuit if it is not

My toyota corolla 1.6 16v carb dont want to idle

Check for missing/ broken vacuum hose. Remove vacuum hose for brake booster and plug That checks for air leaks in booster. Check for power to the idle solenoid unit .If that is not working the idle circuit of the carby is shut down. Adjust idle mixture screw as well.

What do i need to do a tune up

If you have a carby start with plugs, ht cables (good quality) timing light if you can get a test unit that has a exhaust gas reader that will help with tuning the carby. fuel filter/ air filter. check tyre pressures( flat tyres use fuel) and hand brake isn't staying on. Check front wheel bearings for correct adjustment. If you are doing a tune up ,all things affect fuel usage

2006 Toyota Corolla Code P0171 What could be the problem?

po171 means the air fuel ratio is lean (not enough fuel) so you must check for anything that can do that a good example would be a vacuum leak that allows non metered air to enter the engine (more air same amount of fuel = lean mixture) or a clogged injector (same amount of air less fuel = lean mixture as well)

How to adjust fuel mixture 2 barrel carburater for

In the late 70's they mandated that the adjustment screws be capped over. If they haven't been exposed, there will be two plugs covering them on the baseplate. Air adjustment screws are always somewhere on the base of all carbs with the only exception being on Holley 4bbl carbs used on performance engines (definitely not yours)

My 2001 toyota corolla stalls out when cold

It is registering engine too lean due to either too much air entering the engine via an intake leak or by an inaccurate reading from the MAF.

Often on these cars, particularly if they have used Toyota brand air filters, the MAF collects fuzz over time from the air filter.
As this 'fuzz' collects on the MAF element, it acts as an insulator and skews the airflow reading for the ecm; it sees less air than is actually going through, so when it checks your mixture on the way out of the engine it realizes that there is more air than it thought was going in.

Pull your MAF out of the air hose (two philips screws) and clean it with non-chlorinated brake cleaner or "MAF cleaner" available at your local parts store. Look in there with a flashlight, you will see a little coiled wire covered in little bits of fuzz before you start.

Do NOT touch the element, just use the cleaner to blast it clean. Let it air dry completely before reinstalling.

Clear the code and call it a day!

1988 daihatsu charade carburetor

If we are talking the three cylinder CB23 engine the mixture screw is hard to get to and has an anti tamper shroud to stop prying fingers.

The Aisan carby is pretty reliable and problems with them on these engines is usually due to improper vacuum hose connections, or improperly adjusted idle, fast idle and deceleration screws.

A/F ratio is around the standard 14.7, but being a carby you will not get consistent mixtures because the jets sizes are fixed . On an EFI engine you can control the fuel flow, but not so with jets.

If you do decide to give your carby a birthday make sure you only buy the Daihatsu genuine, because the after market units have issues with quality. The minor rebuild kit part No 0421287704000 and the major overhaul kit with plunger, needles, gaskets, clips, etc is part No 0421187729000.

If it was me I'd be concentrating on the hoses, the PCV valve, contact points in the dizzy and better spark plugs first. If you want much better idling and a bit better pull get an electronic dizzy and coil from a G200 series Charade.
