Hi:bbartels

I would suggest setting the LOW speed adjustment to one and a half turns OUT and the HIGH speed adjustment setting at two and a half turns OUT.

This would be about correct for initial settings to get the engine running. From that point the final adjustments can be made.

The final adjustments may need the LOW speed setting set about 3/4 and the HIGH speed about 1 and 3/4 turns out.

Keep in mind a 2 cycle engine should always be set just slightly richer on the HIGH speed setting since the fuel & oil mixture is the only lubrication for the engine.

Good Luck
