Screw it all the way in counting the turns and then back it out the same number of turns.

SOURCE: How do I tell if

is the float needle. could be dirty the float itself can be adjusted to push up the needle. the piece with the screw is for gas adjustment. take the bowl, needle out and clean with carb. cleaner careful not to wet the bowl rubber gasket(carb. cleaner will expand gasket). put all parts back and retest. if it leaks again take apart and look where the needle goes to the float and slightly bend the little stick to push the needle upwards. reasemble and test again.

Aside from blocked jets the wires you speak of go to the anti-after-fire solenoid. Test with a 9v battery if the plunger moves up and down. If not replace or remove the plunger. it is meant to prevent backfires on hot shut down at full throttle. (shut it down at an idle)
If your machine is equipped with a fuel pump (feeds the carburetor) make sure it is pumping fuel.
I hope this helps. Feel free to respond with your engine and machine numbers for more info.

Starting with the question which screw is which: the low speed screw is closest to the engine and that makes the high speed screw farther away. Set the screws 1 turn out and then adjust as needed.

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?

The mixing section has a gap in between


Do you mean the beater is not touching the bottom of the bowl? AS in there is a gap between the beater and the bottom of the bowl so it is not mixing all the ingriedients?
If you have a Tilt-head style mixer, you can adjust the beater/bowl clearance by turning out the adjusting screw. Place your bowl on the bowl screw cap, Place the flat beater on the agitator shaft and lower the head of the mixer so the beater is at the bottom of the bowl. There should be a 1/16" clearance between the bowl and the beater, if the beater is too close to the bowl turn in the adjusting screw, and if the beater is too far away turn out the adjusting screw. The adjusting screw can be located by tilting the head of the mixer back, and in the neck of the mixer you will see a flat head adjusting screw.
However if you have a bowl lift mixer and the bowl is too far from the mixer there are a few different way to fix that problem. If the bowl and beater are too far apart start by adjusting the adjustment screw. On this mixer the adjustment screw is under the head. Remove the bowl, and beater and lay the mixer on its back. You should be able to see under the head a screw sticking out, it does not have a head, but a little slot in the screw, use a flat head screw and adjust the beat 1/4 turn. Put the beater and bowl back on and test mixer to see if it the beater has a 1/16" clearance. If it doesn't adjust the screw and 1/4 turn. If after adjusting the screw the beater and bowl still have too much clearance use a mallet and tap both sides of the yoke arm up evenly until 1/16" beater to bowl clearance is met.
You can use the same dime test in the bowl to make sure you have the correct 1/16" measurement for the beater/bowl distance.
Thank you,

MTD snowblower with Tecumseh engine 8 hp stalls out when chock is adjusted to run position


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.~~

If the carb is a factory carb and has not been modified, there is only one adjustment on the carb. This is the throttle stop screw to set the idle speed with. The only other adjustment is the idle mixture adjuster screw but it's covered with an "anti-tamper" plug to keep people from messing with it. It has been set at the factory to meet EPA regulations. You cannot adjust the idle mixture unless you take the carb off the bike and locate the small plug just behind the float bowl. Drill a small hole in the plug. Drill lightly and just enough to punch through the plug or you'll damage the brass mixture screw under the plug. Then put a sheet metal screw into the hole and pull the plug out. Then, you'll see the idle mixture screw that the EPA does not want you to adjust. Once this is done, take the float bowl off and locate the slow speed jet in the carb. It will down in a deep hole beside the main jet holder. Take it out with a screwdriver and see what size it is. It should be a #45. Replace it with a #48 or a #50. While you're at it, take the top off the carb and remove the slide. Take the needle holder out of the slide and remove the needle. Put a 3 mm flat washer that is about 0.020" thick on the needle from the long end. Use a small dab of grease to hold the washer on the needle and reassemble the carb. Be very careful to get the slide diaphragm back into it's slot around the top of the carb. Do not pinch it or you'll have to replace the slide and diaphragm. It ain't cheap. Put your carb back on the engine with a new intake manifold to carb seal. Start the engine and allow it to warm up and then adjust the idle mixture to the highest smoothest idle. I believe the bike will run a lot better and a lot cooler.

Good Luck
Steve

Need setting for carb. adjuster on bottom of carb right at edge of float bowl. Float bowl has indentation to go around this fuel needle adjuster.


Turn the adjusting screw all the way in until it LIGHTLY seats. Now back it out one and one half turns. Do the same adjustment for the throttle screw on the right side of the carb. You are now back to the stock factory settings.

Honda cr125 idle issues, wont idle not sure whats going on????


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or a plug on the bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw/plug then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well. The diagram below depicts the problem area. The bike will idle properly once the pilot jet and related passageways are cleared.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
