How do you adjust a Mantis Tiller carburetor?
The Mantis tiller carburetors are adjusted using a red and a white screw located behind the air filter cover near the black choke button on the right side of the engine. The red screw adjusts the high-speed setting and the white screw controls the low-speed setting.
Can a carburetor be adjusted?
However, adjusting the carburetor is a relatively simple job that can be done with a basic set of hand tools and a little bit of technical knowledge. This article shows you how to adjust the air fuel mixture and the idle air speed – the two most common adjustments made when tuning a carburetor.
Why does my tiller keep dying?
Because your engine needs more fuel to run at full throttle than to idle, if not enough fuel is in the engine it may cause your cultivator to idle normally, but then die when you run it at full throttle. Like air filters, fuel filters can sometimes be cleaned and the problem will go away.
How do you adjust air fuel mixture?
Turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to sound rough.
- Tightening the screw weakens the air and fuel mixture and decreases the amount of fuel flowing to the engine.
- Tightening the screw is also called making the fuel mixture leaner, which lowers the RPMs at which the engine idles.
How do I know if my carburetor is too 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.
How do you adjust a running rich carburetor?
Regardless of whether or not the engine is running too rich or too lean, bring it down to a very lean mixture by turning both screws a quarter-turn at a time, counter-clockwise, then slowly bringing them back up to an equal and smooth mixture.

What are the two adjustment screws on a carburetor?
Instructions. Locate the two adjustment screws on the carburetor. One screw is for the idle speed or low speed; the other is for the high speed. Turn both of the screws counterclockwise to back them out.
How do you adjust a small carburetor?
Turn the high speed or main jet screw clockwise until the engine begins to slow. Then, turn the screw the other way until the engine begins to slow. Turn the screw back to the midpoint. Once adjusted, check engine acceleration by moving the throttle from idle to fast.
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.
