Question about Garden
If you are asking the oil /fuel ratio for a 2 stroke small engine. not being told the size, make or model makes an answer impossible
however Stihl have a special 2 stroke oil that is mixed at the ratio of 50:1 and that will cover all ratios from 20:1 to 50:1
Saves having different cans for all of the engines that can be a workshop
Mixed correctly it works well and if you want just the one fuel can that includes 4 stroke engines
the 50:1 ratio makes for good upper cylinder lubricant in those engines as well and you will not even see it smoke

not sure if yo are changing the jets out but if your using the original screws and jets screw both screws in till they stop then turn 1 and a half turns out they try starting if it kicks and won't run then turn each screw another 1/2 turn out try starting if it runs rough adjust the gas jet a little bit till it runs smooth once it warms up give it full gas and you should get just a slight puff of black smoke to be set right, if it's too lean it will get hot and will be hard to start if it dies, if that happens then give it extra gas. once warmed up it should idle without dyeing if it dies adjust the idle screw up 1/4 turn at a time till it runs at idle without holding the gas trigger, be sure you replace the in line fuel filter and fuel line first then clean the air filter before doing any adjustments. most problems are caused by plugged fuel filter due to ethanol in the gas.
