Default Re: how to adjust

[QUOTE=nidyanazo;194560]There is no mixture adjustment screw.
You can move the circlip position on the needle to change the mixture though. lower is leaner and up is richer. QUOTE]

You have it backwards...moving the clip upwards leans the mix; downwards richens it. Think of it this way. The higher the clip the less travel upwards so less needle taper is exposed, therefore less fuel. The lower the clip position the higher the needle is raised, more fuel can enter so you get a richer mix.
