this year that was enough to blow, the engine wouldn't start. The
neighborhood kids took care of the driveway for me for home-made chocolate
chip cookies and a few bucks. It was too cold in the garage and the birds
somehow got into the furnace flue so I couldn't heat the garage. I finally
got to it and found it wasn't getting gas.
I pulled the carb and cleaned out the brown concrete in the brass fitting
that the bottom needle valve goes through and Gum-Out'd the rest. There are
two needle valves, one vertical, one horizontal. I set the horizontal at
one turn from closed and the vertical at one and one-half turns from
closed...I forget where I read that.
It started instantly but I have to keep the choke 3/4 closed to keep it
running and it won't stay running through the throttle range.
How do I adjust the carb? I did look on the web first.
