please this is not a matter of paying extra money to the goverment. Xtra premium(45.04) at just 1.5 rupee a litre more than normal petrol(43.54) gives back double ur investment in terms of better fuel efficiency and a cleaner engine. Even my vehicles mileage increased drastically from (41 to 55). also two wheeler owners like us wouldn't feel the price diff. (on 6-7 ltrs.) like car owners do. xtra premium really gives a boost to ur vehicle's pick-up. trust me xtra premium is the best 2 wheeler fuel available.,

Hello Gw Fowler.
Setting the jets on these old engines is done by ear, not by a particular number setting.
The knobs on the front have a screw in the center for centering the knobs after initial adjustment.
Turn both jet screws gently until you get to the closed position on high and low speed. Do not turn too hard as you may damage the needle ends. You will feel them bottom out.( you may need to loosen the center screws).
Then open the high speed open a turn and a quarter.
Open the low speed one turn and a quarter.
You will then need to run the engine on a large test tank or on a boat.
Start the engine and go to an area where you can run full throttle.
Adjust the high speed jet until the engine runs the best and add a little more open but not enough to affect engine speed.
Then slow down to an idle. Slowly close the low speed jet and slow it down more on the throttle. If it spits and backfires open the low speed a little more.
There are some nuts on the carburetor that the jets go through that tighten fiber packing to tighten the jets from turning and sucking air through them.
If the jets are too easy to turn a gentle tightening of these nuts would be a good idea.
After you set the jets, little or no adjustments will be needed.
I hope this helps you get this great little motor running smooth.
Thank you for using FixYa.
