If you have some starting fluid spray, a little into the carburetor and see if it runs. If it comes up but then dies, there's a fuel supply issue. Check for leaks in the tubing, a plugged fuel filter and be sure your carburetor is securely fastened to the motor. Any leak keeps it for sucking the gas into it. Your gas tank needs to have a vent to let the air in to replace the gas coming out but it usually takes a while for this to kill the engine so it'd be last on my list. Good luck.

Are you sure it's the idle adjustment screw or the carburetor adjustment screws? If it's the latter you'll need a specialized driver. They no longer have screw with heads a screwdriver will turn

No user manual


Most 2 Cycle Engines use a 32:1 or 40:1 Fuel Mix Ratio.
The Newer 2 Cycle Engines use a 40:1 or 50:1 Fuel Ratio.
For Better Performance and to be sure you have Plenty of Oil to the Engines Internal Components, I Suggest (and I Use) a 32:1 Ratio in All my Equipment except for Post Hole Diggers.
Post Hole Diggers Use a 25:1 Fuel Ratio.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck
