|misterclean59||Just adjust the idle by ear and turn the mix screw out (counterclockwise) by small increments. Adjust the idle speed if it speeds up after the adjustment. It sounds like it's runny too lean. If turning the mix screw out doesn't make it run perfectly then clean the old slow jet perfectly and use it. ps. the idle should speed up when enrichening the mix screw....... if it is running lean as suspected.|

|[email protected]||Yes I did install the new jet. I guess I am not as familiar with engines like you, as I will not be able to do this by ear|

|misterclean59||Did you install the new pilot/slow jet or did you clean up the old one? About the idle speed.......I'm not sure about where your tach needs to be hooked up but I can tell you that your ear should be able to tell you when it's at a good idle 1,300 to 1,500 rpm's.|

|[email protected]||I did get the Schindy rebuild kit. Cleaned up carburetor and installed the kit. Motor started right up after installing the carb and runs fairly well with the exception of the idling. I have to choke it quite a bit in order to keep it running and when I take all the choke off, it stalls. I’m now in the process of going to set up the mixture setting as per the maintenance manual. I need to set the idle at 1400+ or -100 RPMs and need to attach a tachometer. Can you tell me where I am to attach the tachometer leads?|

|[email protected]||Thanks for everyone’s input. I do have the OEM carb and I’ll order a rebuild kit and start there. Appreciate the help. jw|

|shadetree||buy a shindy carb rebuild kit, take the china carb, toss it in the trash, rebuild your old oem carb, problem solved !.|

Main reasons those aftermarket carbs donít work is the oem throttle and choke cables donít fit the new carb. As a result, the starter (choke) valve doesnít open; that could explain why your enrichment circuit may not be working.
If you can see my signature block, you will see links to service manuals and parts depots.
Hopefully you still have your oem carb and can rebuild it.

Unfortunately, your china swapped in carb issues are the number one driveability complaint we see here on the forums every week. Ya gotta throw that china garbage away and put the OEM carb back on the motor. We can help you fix the OEM carb.
