I need to reset my WD45 carburetor adjustment screws to near to running positions. Once they are close, I can adjust them correctly while the motor is running. I am having trouble getting it started. My book doesn't say where to set them at ball park position. I just converted to electronic ignition. It started an ran pretty rough afterward. It was running way too rich, and died. It won't start now. Timing is probably off too. It seems that the carburetor is way,way off.

Idle mixture is 2 3/8 turns out and the main jet is 1 5/8 turns out on my 170. I think a WD45 will be close, I set my D17 the same and it runs great.

Eldon's probably right on, but if that doesn't work most times you can start with the screws 1-1/2 turns out and then adjust accordingly. I know the B/C was 1-1/2 turns out, just don't remember the WD45 setting.
