What valves are to be adjusted on a lawnmower to keep it idling

There are not but two valves, intake and exhaust, and I doubt they need adjusting. Matter of fact I doubt anyone could do much to adjust them. Sounds like to me you've got a fuel mixture problem which could be as simple as changing the air filter. If that doesn't help it's likely carburetor related. If you have a bowl type carburetor, take it off and clean out the bowl with carburetor cleaner and make sure the float moves freely up and down. While you're at it spray it thorough all the jets in the carburetor. If you don't have a bowl type, buy a new set of diaphrams and gaskets and replace the old ones.

Adjust mikuni carb float

Pull the float bowl and float bowl gasket off the carburetor.
Place the carburetor upside down and let the float rest against the float needle.
Measure the distance between the gasket surface located on the bottom of the carburetor to the edge of the float. On a 24 mm Mikuni card, the distance between the gasket surface and the float should be 1 inch. On a 20 mm Mikuni carburetor it should be 7/8-inch.
Bend the metal tab on the float that rests against the float needle. Bend it towards the float needle if the measurement is shallow and away from the needle if the measurement is too much.
Use a pair of needle-nose pliers, making very small adjustments to the metal tab and then recheck the measurement.

Constantly stall and has no power

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for condition and replace with original rubber lines, not plastic if needed. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness including those holding the carburetor to the cylinder. If the two jet screws have not been adjusted, they should be ok. There is a chance that the diaphragm in the lower carburetor chamber is hard, cracked, or has a hole. Also, check the fuel metering valve that the diaphragm controls for tip damage or dirt accumulations. Go to for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting which applies to nearly every brand of carburetor used in saws. Hope this helps!

Volvo pento 1998 want start with out pouring gas down throat of carburetor (marine)

There are a few things to check for this problem and you will need a helper to run 1 test on the engine. Whether you have a carburetor or injectors the engine needs to draw in the fuel. Put your hands over the carburetor without the flash arrestor on it. Have a helper crank the engine and try to start it doing what you normally would do on a cold start.

If you feel a vacuum draw and the engine starts or the carburetor gets wet and tries to start you need to adjust the choke or test the intake manifold gasket.
On a carburetor the choke plate needs to be closed when cold or even warm on some motors. The intake gasket needs to seal and can seal when it gets hot.

After you get the motor running squirt some water around the seams of the intake gasket and see if the Rpms drop or the engine cuts out. Same thing for the base carburetor gasket.

If adjusting the choke does not help and there are no manifold leaks you need to remove the carb with as little disturbance as possible. Then place it on a level surface and expose the bowl to see if it is dry or low on gas. If the bowl is dry,you need a rebuild and if the level is low you need to adjust the float. Get your model number for the carburetor and go online to find the specs or just wing it. Usually fuel levels are 3/8 to 1/4 inch below the top level of the fuel bowl.
