1 1/4 turn is the correct setting. That could be the problem. Or the carb is gummed up inside. sticky floats or a leaky intake gasket could do this as well.

How many turns out air screw for hero hunk motorcycle


Hi, Sazedul you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle adjuster clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture adjuster you may adjust it as well if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture adjuster clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back it out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle adjuster accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air fuel mixture adjuster 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture adjuster can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then readjusting the idle adjustment back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture adjuster all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

Ryobi s430 will idle but will stall out when throttle opens. This carburetor has one idle adjustment screw and one fuel mixture screw.


Those carbs are a pain. Try arousing the idle screw, turun it to the right, then try to see if it will idle. You will have to tinker with the adjustment screw and the idle screw. Eventually you're gonna need a new carburetor. You can rebuild it, BUT , chances are those cheap carburetors never are the same.

I need to know the proper tuning of ucal mikuni carburetor with mixture adjusting screw on bottom of cabr (beneath float bowl), an idle adjust screw and pilot screw (hopefully pilot fuel screw since s


Why did you need to clean the carb? Routine servicing of the aircleaner would keep the carb clean for life. The pilot screw should be 1.5 turns out approx. with a small adjustment either way. Idle speed is set to a smooth low idle.If this doesn't fix it have you got something in the carb not replaced correctly? The float needle/float assy? How did you clean it? Have you introduced fluff/dirt into the carb and did you blow it clean with an airline?

1988 F-250 460 engine stalls when dribing down the road


On older, carbureted engines, cold stalling (and hard starting) is most often due to an automatic choke that is sticking, misadjusted or broken. Cleaning the choke mechanism with aerosol carburetor cleaner may free up the choke allowing it to work properly again. If the choke housing as an electrical heating element, the element may not be receiving voltage when the key is on, or the element may have burned out (check resistance with an ohmmeter).

Other causes of stalling with a carburetor include an idle speed adjustment screw that is set too low (turn screw to increase idle speed rpm). The engine may stall if the idle fuel mixture screw(s) are not adjusted correctly or the idle mixture port(s) are dirty or clogged with fuel varnish deposits (clean the carburetor and readjust the idle mixture screws for smoothest idle). Stalling can also occur is there are vacuum leaks in the carburetor, under the carburetor (bad base gasket), or any vacuum hose connections to the carburetor or intake manifold
