The jets need setting up. As a guide, screw the tickover jet in completely and unscrew by 2 1/4 turns. You will be somewhere near it.

I have 1994 fxdl the plugs keep getting caked with black soot and fauling out which makes me believe its running to rich, its also backfiring,thru carb and exhaust, i want to know how to lean it out


Before I can tell you how to lean your carburetor out, I need to know what kind of carb you have. But, there are other possible causes for your problem. The factory usually jets the original Keihin CV carb too lean to meet EPA emission requirements. The most probable cause is running the enricher too long while warming the engine up. The enricher on any carburetor provides an extremely rich mixture. So rich that it will foul plugs if allowed to run for too long. You should only use the enricher long enough to warm the engine to the point to where you can keep the engine running with the throttle grip. Once the engine will run with the throttle grip, simply idle the engine up and use the throttle grip lock to hold the throttle at this setting and push the enricher knob in. Other causes could be that the needle is not seating properly and allowing the carb to load up with fuel. If this is the case, you should have noticed that the engine is idling extremely rich and poorly. In this case, you'll have to at least drop the float bowl off and replace the needle and check the float setting with the new needle. The Kiehin CV must be positioned on an angle to set the float properly. If you still have reason to think that you need to change your carb's jetting, re-post telling me exactly what carb is on your engine.

Good Luck

Briggs and stratton 5.5 lawnmower starts and suddenly stops. carborator flooding


I suggest that you start with the carb issue. Flooding is an issue with the inlet valve and float system. Get a rebuild kit and rebuild the carb. My bet is the unit will work correctly after that.

1985 300 runs to rich


Is it a Holly carburator? If it is and the choke operating correctly, then you have a warped metering plate in the carb allowing too much gas to go into the engine. Rebuild the carb abd check the plates for warpage before reinstalling them. There is also a power valve in the carburator that some times goes bad. Good Luck,

Gmc vandura 1996, 3500 running rich


There could be all kinds of reasons your vehicle runs rich. It should be fuel injected not carborated. It could have a bad injector, bad air filter, o2 sensors etc. Have it scaned for the reason.
