Installing on the engine

Before installing on the engine set the idle mixture screw at a setting that will allow the carburetor to function. This is 1 1/2 turns from fully seated. Turn in the idle mixture screw till it stops and then back out 1 1/2 turns.  Also set the idle speed screw at a position the should allow the engine to idle. This is two (2) turns after the screw begins to open the throttle. When installing on the engine be sure to use new gasket(s), either the diffuser gasket or a thickness equivalent. This thickness is required to prevent the carb hold down studs from contacting the carb body and preventing a seal.
