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.
What does the needle do in a carburetor?
Within the needle jet the needle moves up and down to vary the orifice size to meter the fuel. The tapered shape of the needle controls the amount of fuel coming up through the main jet and through the needle jet. As it goes up, the opening gets larger, letting more fuel into the mix.

How does a carb work?
The carburetor works on Bernoulli’s principle: the faster air moves, the lower its static pressure, and higher the dynamic pressure is. The throttle (accelerator) linkage does not directly control the flow of liquid fuel.
What’s a CV carb?
On CV ( constant velocity ) carbs – when the throttle is twisted, the cable opens up the butterfly valve, which allows air to be drawn into the mouth of the carb. You control the butterfly which allows air in, which controls the slides, which controls the air / fuel mixture entering the engine.
