Carb Question

Hi Guys,
I have a HSSK50 Troy Built Snow Blower and want to know the order in which the idle-jet/spring-washer -o-ring go in. Anyway does the brass washer go on after the rubber o-ring
or after the spring. Also when I try to adjust the idle it doesn't seem to change.
Many thanks to everyone here that have helped me along in repairing my snowblower. I knew nothing about small engines until this snowblower threw a rod. I ended up fixing the hole in the crankcase with quicksteel and a steel blank the size of a quarter. Now I'm just looking to get it working right so I can store it away until next winter.

Well, If you get the idle adjuster installed and adjusted properly the engine may idle properly.

Put the spring on the adjuster then the brass washer then the O-ring, Install the adjuster until LIGHTLY seated closed then open it 1 1/2 turns. Start the engine and fine tune from there until the smoothest idle is reached.

Good Luck
