To much air getting through
being careful not to over tighten or you will crack your inlet manifold
solution: tighten down your carburetor and tune up your carburetor
adjust the outside screw first that is your throttle screw
then once a full revs adjust the inside screw to where you want the max revs to be

How to fix a Weber DGV 2 Barrel Carb. I have a Weber Carb on my Model A Ford. It stalls out when accelerating up a hill. Can you help with where to start adjustments?

Sounds like restricted fuel correct fuel filter? Air/Fuel mixture...while idling...turn each screw clockwise until slight stall...then back out (counter clockwise) one and a half turns to smooth idle...Hope this helps.

1985 chevy blazer s10, replaced mechanical fuel pump, still not gettin fuel to carberator

I have a 1984 S-10 Blazer since it was new
almost 29 years ago

Explain how a new fuel pump doesn't work

I only had that once on my 1965 corvette
A new pump had been assembled with the
diaphragm outside on a couple holes,a quick fix

You must have fuel to the carb & thus you need
to take the carb apart & work on that

So far I found that NAPA is the only source for
a carb kit

I have a Toro 524 with Tecumseh engine, model 38040 8 0000640. I am rebuilding the carb and would like to know what are basic settings for idle and hi/low speed screws?

The high speed mixture screw is initially set at 1 & 1/2 turns out. Then adjust it to give good acceleration and top speed, while not closing the screw more than you need to. The low speed mixture screw is set at 3/4 of a turn out. Adjust that, to give a smooth idle. The 3rd screw, the idle speed screw, is set to give a low idle speed without stalling.

Good Morning,,,, 1. What are function of high speed and low speed needle for gas boat.? 2. Which needle shall i set to get higher RPM and how correct step to do it? thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

The L screw is adjusted when your having problems accelerating from idle..i.e sluggisgh acceleration or stalls.

The H screw is adusted at MAX rpm only to get the fastest engine speed. You may have to make minor adjustments on the L screw after adjusting the H screw to smooth out acceleration from idle to MAX speed so that you do not have stalls or sluggish acceleration.

There is one major NO NO when making carb adjustments... NEVER screw the jets tightly closed. The jet tips will jam into the carb body and twist off. If you ever have to close the jets completely... ligtly close them.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Craftsman 2 cycle blower stalls.


Most Probably the problem lies in the adjustment of the carburettor. There are two needles in the carb one for lowend adjustment and one for high end adjustment. Your lowend adjustment seems fine. The highend needle needs to be adjusted. Following are some very detailed procedures for adjusting these types of carbs

If your machine has a carb other than a "Walbro" dont worry the procedures are same. I am sure if your engine has not completed its life span this will solve your problem.
