I have completely unset the carburetion settings on my 11 HP B&S model 1/C installed on a riding lawnmower.
The first setting that can be made is between the gas tank and carburetor, and it is on the body of the carb. Its a simple screw set device that completely shuts off all gas or allows various amounts of flow. Can anyone tell me what an initial setting might be such as 1/2 turn open or 2 1/2 turns open etc. I just need to have a starting position.
The second adjustment that can be made is to the float chamber. On the bottom of the chamber is a finger screw that increases or decreases the float movement and thus the fuel level within the chamber. Once again I am trying to find an initial setting.
The Champion CJ6 or 849c Spark Plug I have installed tends to blacken and get very carbonized, thus robbing power which results in eventual rough running and stalling of the engine. Any idea what the gap should be? I have no manual to assist in tuning the engine for best performance.
