You didn't say what type of carb so I'll just say the most likely answer,On the bottom of the bowl the screw in the center should be about 3/4 turn out from the all the way in position,but this can be adjusted while the engine is running for a perfect setting.

How do i adjust the carb on an echo blower


Not sure what carb you have..You should be able to see a spring loaded air/gas adjustment screw on the carb..once running turn clockwise until motor starts bogging down then the other way until it does the same..keep adjusting back and forth unti it runs smooth..
you may have another on the bottom of the carb bowel..do the same with it...if this doesn't work needs a rebuild kit..good luck..

How to rebuild a 1987 plymouth gran fury 2 barrel carburetor


First, you will need to get a rebuild kit for it. This contains gaskets and other bits that wear and need replacing on occasion. There will be a number on a tag or the carb body that the parts store will need to get the right kit. There's no point in trying to reuse the old gaskets, if you are going to try that, then don't waste your time rebuilding.

The kit will contain a sheet of paper whjich will give you an exploded diagram of all the parts in your carburator and where they belong. there will also be information on various settings for idle, choke, etc. Don't lose these sheets.

When you start to disassemble the carb, keep the old gaskets to compare with new ones. When you remove the idle screws, turn them in until they stop. Be gentle when you do this and count the number of turns. Write that number down, so when you put it back together you know where the idle setting is supposed to be. There will be extra gaskets in the kit and they will all be different. You must replace with exactly the same as what you took off. Also pay very close attention the how the choke linkage comes apart. It will go together more than 1 way so you can get it wrong. This will make the car act up or maybe not even start.

Soak the carb in a good quality cleaner and make sure everything is clean and all the lines are open before you start to reassemble it.Use your diagrams to make sure you put everthing back where it belongs, replacing with new parts when possible. Be very careful with the float measurement, it must be exact, close won't work.

This is going to take you several hours, so don't be in a rush.

How to rebuild a 22r carburetor


This Carb was using in Toyotas (i.e. 87 PickUp), according with this, check this removal ans installing ptocedure.

1 Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2 Loosen the radiator drain plug and drain the coolant into a suitable container.
3 Unscrew the mounting screws and remove the air filter housing. Disconnect all hoses and lines leading from the air cleaner.
4 Tag and disconnect all fuel, vacuum, coolant and electrical lines or hoses leading from the carburetor.
5 Disconnect the accelerator linkage from the carburetor. On cars equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the throttle cable linkage running from the transmission.
6 Remove the four carburetor mounting bolts and lift off the carburetor and its gasket.
Cover the manifold opening with a clean rag to prevent anything from falling into the engine.

7 Install the carburetor (with a new gasket), tighten the mounting bolts EVENLY in steps and reconnect all linkage.

Will not start. Took apart, cleaned all the oily residue off everything, including the magnet under the flywheel. put back together. new spark plug. Have good spark now. I think it might need a carburator...


I assume it's probably a Zama carb maybe? A good starting point for carb fine-tuning is about 1 1/2 turns out from a lightly seated position on the H and L adjustment needles. You may have to go as far as 2 turns out to get it to start. If you open the 2 covers at either end of the carb, you will find out the actual condition of the carb and be able to decide if it needs a dighram kit or maybe a complete rebuild kit. Don't use carb/choke cleaner on these carbs and never soak it in a bath-type cleaner...it messes up the check valves..See how Zamas operate here:

Engine starts in "full choke" mode. It winds down & shuts off when moved to "half choke". Throws off a good amount of blue smoke when running in full choke.


IF it has a bowl float adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb float bowl, you can try adjusting the screw in or out the get it to run better. the usual setting on a briggs engine is 3/4 to 1 1/2 turns out. so you could screw it in clockwise. till it bottoms out(do not turn it in hard, just till it starts to get tight then stop) then turn it back out 1 full turn. count how many turns you tightened it too. that if it was like not even one turn to tighten it or it was was over one turn, then it was out out adjustment. 1 turn should get it to run, then fine tune it in or out till it runs the best!! sometimes if there is bad gas in it (smells like turpintine, then you'll have to take the carb off and put a rebuild kit in it and clean the carb with a carb sray cleaner .. not hard to put a kit in, just don't take it aprt till you have the carb kit and look at whats in it and you'll do fine!! hope this helps!!! richie p.s. message me back if you need to !!

I was given a Case tractor. It needed a fuel


Is your fuel pump working? are you getting fuel to the carb?

1. check for spark
2. check for compression in all cylinders
3. check carb (if it's been a long time since it was last started, you will need to just take the carb apart and clean it or get a carb rebuild kit. rebuild kit is easiest route and once you do that, you are done fussing with it.
4. Diagnose the problem.
a. try starting fluid directly into the carb. If it fires up then quits you have a fuel delivery problem. Once you figure out that, you can trace the problem back from the motor to the tank.
5. If you don't have any spark, try new plugs, then try new wires, then start going over your electrical system

Someone put oil only in fuel tank. Best way to clean it out? Now won't run smoothly with new fuel


TRY TAKING OFF TANK AND FLUSHING WITH SIMPLE GREEN. CARB IS PROBABLY CLOGGED SO I DON'T KNOW IF CARB CLEANER CAN FLUSH OIL OUT. A REBUILD KIT IS ONLY 10-12 DOLLARS AND REALLY EASY. JUST DISSASSEMBLE CARB,PAY CLOSE ATTN AND BUY A CAN CARB CLEANER IN THE CAN AND FLUSH OUT EVERY HOLE IN CARB,WEAR SAFETY GLASSES AND DON'T TURN MIXTURE SCREWS. KIT COMERS WITH NEW GASKETS,BUY A PRIMER BULB WHEN YOU GET TO SMALL ENGINE SHOP OR OR GOOD LAWN MOWER SUPPLY SHOP. YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE CARB THERE WITH YOU ALSO. I DID THREE ALREADY FOR BAD FUEL,REALLY EASY,JUST ATTN TO DETAIL. OH,REMOVED PLUG SPRAY OFF AND SCREUB OIL OFF AND GET A LIGHTER AND HEAT OFF GUNK OFF ELECTRODE. GOOD LUCK!
