Why does snorkel occasionally get blocked?
When you are under water, you should have a lungs full of air, whilst holding your breath. Your lungs are still processing residual oxygen. When you surface, you should always have enough air to clear the snorkel. If you are using the type with a ball in it, spray it with dry silicone spray to stop it sticking.
How many time is normal mask life ?
it depends on the quality of the mask and it depends on how you stored it (if you leaved it at sunlight, if you washed it thoroughly after using it in the sea...)
i have a mid quality mask Mares mask, i have been using about 20 times for snorkeling, then i used it to take diving certifications in pool, then i used it for about other 20 dives in the sea... i always stored it in a dark bag (the mask is now about 8 years old)
you can check if you mask is still in good shape, and the silicone has not worn out, in this simple way: just put the mask on your face without straps.. remove all the air inside the mask by inhaling with your nose.. then look at your feet (keep inhaling): if the mask remains on your face you can keep using it
How do i adjust the carburetor
there will be a plug at the side top of the fuel bowl that you remove to check and adjust the float level while running
the float level is adjusted by the bolt at the top of the cover above the needle and seat adjust until the fuel is level with the threads of the plug
screw that mixture screw/s in all the way then back out 1 1/2 turns
start the engine and adjust the idle speed by the screw on the accelerator lever
set to around 800 rpms
adjust the mixture screw in until the rpms start to slow
now screw the mixture out until the rpms again slow
mixture adjustment is achieved by turning the screw back in 1/2 the turns that you used to turn it out from the slow in position to the slow position out
again adjust the engine rpms by the accelerator screw to the 800 rpms
most engines idle between 700 and 850 rpms unless and efi engine which have around 850 -950 rpms range
