Tip & How-To about Sport & Outdoor - Others
We all have some frustration with small gasoline engines from time to time. Often, do to our own weak maintenance schedule we put these engines away for the season without paying any attention to the recommended procedures in the owner manual. Today I am going to talk you through the steps to adjust a small gas engine's carburetor.
1. Read through the whole list before you start adjusting.
2. Close both jets GENTLY
3. Open the Low speed 1/4 turn
4. Open high speed jet 1 1/4 turn 5. Start engine.
6. Adjust low speed until idling smoothly.
7. Open her up wide open.
8. Adjust High speed until engine transitions smoothly from idle to high speed without bogging.
9. Shut engine off. Let it cool.
10. Once engine is cold. Fire it up and let it idle for 30 seconds. Open it up wide open again. Adjust if necessary.
Please Note - It is best to adjust the carburetor at the beginning of the usage season. In other words, don't adjust your rototiller engine in the dead of winter when you won't use it in those conditions. Regards, Joe
