Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
There isnt a true mixture screw on most of the walk behind mowers.
All you can do is remove the main jet *(its actually the bolt you remove to take off the carb bowl!) and clean out the passages in it. Be sure to clean the very small jet at the top of the threads. It is so tiny you will need a magnafying glass and a wire brush cleaning to see it.
Old style carbs had bottom screws with adjustable jets in them. If your equipment is old enough you might see one of these. Otherwise it is just a hollowed out bolt.
You could also adjust the float level....increasing float level will richen up your mixture. It also sometimes improves priming.
Good luck and be careful
