How do I know if my carburetor is rich or lean?
Q: How Do You Tell if a Carburetor Is Rich or Lean? A: One way to tell for sure is by “reading” the spark plugs. If the plug tip is white, the mixture is lean. If it’s brown or black, it’s rich.
Is clockwise lean or rich?
If the mixture screw is turned clockwise is the fuel lean or rich? When the adjuster is turned clockwise, then it reduces the flow of fuel and makes the engine run lean. If you remember tightening the screw stops fuel flow, loosening the screw increases it. Too much fuel with mixture screw all the way in.

How do you adjust the idle on a carburetor?
If the carburetor is new to the engine, start at 1 -turns out (counterclockwise) from full in. Now start the engine and set the idle speed to around 850 rpm with the idle-speed screw. If your engine has a big cam and must idle at a higher speed, that’s OK. Note the reading on the vacuum gauge.
