What do the screws on a carburetor do?
Depending on the make and model of the vehicle, different carburetors may have multiple, sometimes up to four, air fuel mixture adjustment screws. These screws are responsible for controlling the amount of fuel that enters the engine, and improper adjustment will result in decreased engine performance.
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.
How do you adjust a pilot screw?
