Screw both screws right in (don't force them) Then turn each screw out 1 & half turns each OUT. This will get engine running. To fine tune- turn low speed screw out, bit by bit, while idling, till engine revs change, then turn screw in till revs change, the correct setting will be somewhere between the 2 adjustments you just made. Do the same thing to the high speed screw, but with full revs. Good Luck. Stevo..

Honda mower HRU173PU carby screws adjustment


Hi Paul
Before you remove or try to adjust your low and high speed jets you should always count the number of turns it takes to lightly seat the idle mixture screw and high speed needle adjusting screws.
Be sure to write the number of turns down on a piece of paper so you will know how many turns from the seated position to open the jets when you go to reinstall them, or if you remove them for cleaning or replacement.
If you have aready tried to adjust them then the adjustments below should get it running for you for final adjustment when warm.
Normally you will adjust your idle jet to 1/2-3/4 turn open from the bottom seated position.
Then you will re-adjust the low speed of the engine when the engine is warm by turning the idle screw in or out till the engine runs smoothly at idle speed, around 1200 RPM.
The high speed jet is adjusted to 1 1/2- 1 3/4 open from the bottom seated position, after the engine is warm.
Then re-adjusted by turning the High Speed jet adjustment screw in or out till the motor runs smoothly at high speed.
Alway use the "lightly seated" method if you have not changed the screw settings.

I need the manual for a b&s 7hp #143-666382


hello ,your engine is a tecumseh HMSK90-156525D, Sounds like carb. may need adjusting. Take the heat box off to expose carb. the heat box is the metal box surrounding the caeb., there should be 2 adjustment screws- 1 on the bottom of the bowl and 1 on the side of the carb just above the edge of the bowl ( depending how the carb sets off the engine - if the carb comes straight out it will be on the side facing towards the front of the snow blower or if it goes towards the handles then standing other side of the snow blower the screw will be facing you), turn both screws in til they just bottom out the turn them out 1 1/4 turns out then start the machine. While the machine is running at low idle turn the screw on the side of the carb. in (clockwise) a little at a time listening for the engine to start to rev up and then start to rev down, bog or studder then turn back slightly to bring idle back up. Once the idle is up then the screw on the very top of the carb. turn that out to lower idle to a normal idle. Repeat those adjustments till you cant get the idle to go up anymore. Now for the screw on the bottom of the bowl- move the throttle up to max and turn the screw in till you hear it rev up higher and starts to bog or sputter then turn it back slightly to bring the high rev to a smooth rev. That should take care of it. If it does not solve it then the carb may need cleaning then the adjustments done again. If you need more help on this please feel free to ask. Sometimes you have to do process of elimination and you start with the easiest first. Also the adjustments should help with the carbon build up on the plug.692509.pdf (application/pdf Object)
i have included the manual to give you a good understanding of the carb, page 7 to 25, hope this helps,don't forget the 4 thumbs up,any comments welcome,thank you.~~

My Honda 13.5hp engine has started surging. It seemed to occur after the air filter fell off during mowing for a few seconds. I have tried cleaning the carburator but it still surges. Anything else I can...


Hi sndlys,
When the engine surges (we call it hunting) like that it usually means, the carburetor or the governor need adjustment. You have cleaned the carb. but did you clean or replace the air filter, and did you try to adjust the carb? Since it was running good before I doubt it is the governor. Try to adjust the high speed mixture screw by 1/8 turn at a time and waiting a few seconds to let that adjustment work it's way in the carb. Start by turning the screw out (counterclockwise) a few times. If nothing happens or gets worse turn the screw in (clockwise) a few times, but do not go less than 1 turn out from a lightly seated position. (turned clockwise until lightly seated so no damage is done to the seat or the needle screw) to prevent running in too lean a mixture to prevent overheating and possible engine damage. You could try the low (idle) speed mixture screw adjust a bit, but make sure you remember the position you started from whenever you any adjustment at all. I think if the carburetor is clean and the air filter is clean, also that there is a good fuel flow to the carb. you should be OK. I hope this helps out a bit.Get back to me if you need help. All the best and good luck. Denis.

Lawn mower victor vc40 quattro, idle goes up and down! is it the carb?


Yes this could be the carb that needs adjusting, but it could also be the governor or both the carb and the governor. You could try adjusting the low speed mixture screw by turning it counterclockwise 1/8 of a turn at a time 3 or 4 times and see if it helps, (remember where it is so you can return it to this position if this does not work) or try it clockwise 3 or 4 times. That is about all I can suggest for now. Adjusting the governor is too hard to try to explain to you. I hope this helps a bit. Best regards and good luck.

Need to know how many turns do i turn out the needle valves on the 11 hp briggs @ stratton. need to know for everyone. thanks


ADJUSTING THE IDLE SPEED AND MIXTURE
On some float-type carburetors, you can adjust the air-fuel mixture and engine speed at idle. Check for an idle speed screw designed to keep the throttle plate from closing completely, and an idle mixture screw that limits the flow of fuel at idle. If your carburetor contains these screws, proceed below.
  1. With the engine off, remove the air filter and air cartridge.
  2. Locate the idle mixture screw and turn it clockwise until the needle lightly touches the seat. Then, turn the screw counterclockwise 1-1/2 turns.
  3. If your carburetor has a main jet adjustment screw at the base of the float bowl, turn the screw clockwise until you feel it just touch the seat inside the emulsion tube. Then, turn the screw counterclockwise 1 to 1-1/2 turns. Replace the air cleaner assembly and start the engine for final carburetor adjustments.
  4. Run the engine for five minutes at half throttle to bring it to its operating temperature. Then, turn the idle mixture screw slowly clockwise until the engine begins to slow. Turn the screw in the opposite direction until the engine again begins to slow (image A). Finally, turn the screw back to the midpoint.
  5. Using a tachometer to gauge engine speed (image B), set the idle speed screw to bring the engine to 1750 RPM for aluminum-cylinder engine or 1200 RPM for engine with a cast-iron cylinder sleeve.
  6. With the engine running at idle (image D), hold the throttle lever against the idle speed screw to bring the engine speed to "true idle." Then, repeat the idle mixture screw adjustments from Step 4 to fine-tune the mixture (image C).

Little fingers have been turning the throttle & carb screws on my lawnmowers Tecumseh AQ148 engine & now it 'hunts' & struggles to run at full throttle. What are the settings?


With many engines, you can start by screwing them all the way in. Turn each about a half turn out at the same time. try to start it. Turn a little more each. Again start it. Eventually, it will run but listen to how the engine runs. It should not be super revved up nor should it sound like it is barely staying running. Adjust one screw at a time to fine tune it once you get it to stay running. Either it will need more air or more gas. Take it for a spin..how does it cut? Does it bog down in normal grass? You may need to give the gas another half turn. Half turns on the screws to 1/4 turns once you fine tune it. Once it purrs nicely, see how well it cuts without bogging down. I hope this helps. This is the way I adjust all of my smaller engines. Make sure you check your plug and ensure it is still good before you do this and that your gas is not spoiled too. Please let me know if I have helped or if you need more help.
