Carb Adjustment..

Hey Guys,
I've got a Tecumseh model #HSSK50 engine and are wondering what the two carb JET adjustments are. TIA!

The screw on the side is low speed/idle mixture, the one on the bottom is high speed mixture. Adjustment should be set at 1-1/2 turns out from bottom.(turn screw in LIGHTLY until seated, then back out from there. Fine tune while running turning only 1/8 turn at a time then wait a minute then adjust again if needed. High speed screw adjustment is made at full throttle, low speed at idle. Low speed has no effect over half throttle.
