How do you adjust the air fuel mixture on a Briggs and Stratton carburetor?

How does a Vacu Jet carburetor work?
- Fuel tank is below carburetor (is not gravity feed)
- Vented cap on fuel tank keeps constant pressure in tank.
- Piston moving down in cylinder creates low pressure area in the carburetor throat.
- Difference in pressure forces fuel up the fuel pipe, past the needle valve and through two discharge holes.
How does a pulse carburetor work?
A pulse fuel pump has four tubes connected to it. One tube connects the fuel tank. Two tubes connect each carburetor and one tube connects the crankcase of the engine. When the engine revolves, the tube connecting the engine delivers fuel with a pulse of pressure at each revolution.

How do you adjust the governor on a Briggs and Stratton engine?
First, loosen the arm until it is moving freely. Next, open the throttle to full capacity while making a note of which direction the arm moves in when the throttle moves through it. Once the throttle is fully opened, move the governor shaft in the same direction the governor arm traveled.
