Question about Garden
Still could be a number of things. Sounds like you know your way around mowers so try removing the fuel shut-off and plugging it first. Even if it click when tested...still has been know to be an issue here in the shop. Second guess is that you have a small leak in the carb gaskets. Your that far anyways...rebuild the carburetor. let me know if that dosen't help...www.nnyparts.com

Testimonial: "Great Idea, I went there once and tested the shut off solenoid with a battery and it worked o.k. But I plugged it and tried it without it. Same problem I took it apart once again and found that the main jet sleeve which fits down inside has 2 "O" rings which seemed to be dryed out and cracked. I going to have to get a kit to replace them. Thank you so much for your help. Lee"

Both the Hi and Lo screws are simply needle valves. By turning them you allow more or less fuel to flow past the needle. When you adjust them you are directly controlling how much fuel flows through the idle jet and the main jet.
is your car have a choke plate lever ( for warming up ) (like old fashion ) ?
When the engine is cold and you try to start it with the pull cord, the engine is running at an extremely low RPM. It is also cold, so it needs a very rich mixture to start. This is where the choke plate comes in. When activated, the choke plate completely covers the venturi to see it in action). If the throttle is wide open and the venturi is covered, the engine's vacuum draws a lot of fuel through the main jet and the idle jet (since the end of the carb's tube is completely covered, all of the engine's vacuum goes into pulling fuel through the jets). Usually this very rich mixture will allow the engine to fire once or twice, or to run very slowly. If you then open the choke plate the engine will start running normally.
