I found a Craftsman mower, left for dead out in-front of a house today.( poor thing) I spent my sunday ripping it apart. To my astonishment there wasn't a mixture screw on the carburetor. In the course of my online search to find the answer to this 'freak-carb'......i found this site. http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/lmfaq.htm It explained to me that craftsman (tecumseh) carbs are not adjustable. It's very informative! I suggest you check it out, especially if you don't want to buy a manual.

Good job and hope you get it working. I got a mower from my neighbor (1988 Craftsman) that too was left for dead.

My mother laughed when she heard some puttering in the garage and then all of a sudden, VROOOOOOOOOM. She looked outside and saw me smiling ear to ear cutting our lawn with it. I simply tuned it up and gave it some TLC and walah, it works as good as new. In fact, I used it yesterday at my grandparents house. Starts on the first try every single week!

Just goes to show with a little TLC, some smarts, and help from forums like these, you can get things like that working in short order. Yahoo!!

By the way, I also fixed a snowblower the SAME neighbor discarded. Simply needed the gearcase lubed .
