4hp Tecumseh

Cheese and/or Tcumcman:

Got my carb rebuilt, engines starts fine without any problem. But when I engage the tines, engine dies. What have I done wrong, is it just a carb adjustment or something else?

Thanks

Jimmy

Sounds like the engine may be running too lean. Does the engine seem to surge, or spit out the exhaust a bit? It could be running lean due to an incorrect float position, restriction in the carb, carb adjustment if applicable, etc...

Cheese,
which screw makes the adjustment and which way do I turn it? Is it the one on the side on the one on the bottom of the float bowl?

Turn the screw on the side clockwise until it lightly bottoms out, then back it out 2 turns. Then, while running engine at full throttle, loosen the one on the bottom of the bowl until the engine runs rough, then tighten the screw while counting the turns until it begins to spit, run rough, and or stall. Then back it out again half the # of turns you counted. This should get it about right, and fine tuning can be done if necessary.
