How does Zama carb work?
➍ As the fuel and air mixture is drawn out of idle pocket it creates low pressure in the metering chamber. Atmospheric pressure pushes the metering diaphragm against the metering lever. This releases the spring pressure applied to the inlet needle and allows fuel to flow into the metering chamber.
What is the H and L on a carburetor?
They are typically labeled L (low speed jet), H (high speed jet), and I (idler jet).
How do you adjust a high and low carburetor?
Locate the two fuel-adjustment screws on the side of the carburetor. One will be labeled “Hi” and the other “Lo.” The “Hi” screw regulates the engine at full throttle and the “Lo” regulates the fuel when the engine is idling.
How do you adjust H and L screws on a carburetor?
Set the idle speed screw(not L or H) so it is just able to idle by itself. This screw will have a “stop” it rests against. Now turn the L screw out until in decreases in rpm and then back in(very slowly) until it is at peak rpm. Adjust the H screw once more as above and it should be a very serviceable 2 stroke.
How do you adjust a carburetor on a diaphragm?

Do 2-stroke engines have carburetors?
A 2-stroke or double barrel carburetor works the same way that a basic carburetor works, except that more air and gasoline can be pushed into the engine because there are more barrels or tubes and thus, more airflow.
