Start with the 2 adjusting screws (1 on top is Idle, 1 on bottom is Load) each turned out 1.5 turns.

awhtx,Thanks for answering my question.I appreciate it very much.Ive been working on both sides of 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 turns each and playing with it,but just doesnt act right all the time,part of the time its got a lot of gas in carb and then none,got fuel all the way to carb it seems,but I'll throw away the filter as Ive already read from folks on earlier posts about the inline filter problem.THANKS GUYS

can you be any less specific/

'at the carb'

at the fuel bowl to carb connection.

at bowl to head.. line to head.

at carb halves?

carb mouth?

out choke or throttle shaft?

I could have been less specific,but you'd never have figured it out without being there,but it was exactly as stated,FUEL RIGHT UP YO THE CARB,PART TIME GAS SHOOTING OUT INTAKE PORTION OF CARB,AND PART TIME WAS BONE DRY.Got good flow all the way through NOW,got good points now,everything is great now,ended up being a combination of several things.Had GREMLINS at work!
