    What settings?

    The only things readily adjustable are the idle mixture, idle speed and choke idle speed. The idle speed is 650, the mixture is the smallest amount of opening (turns CCW) to get a steady 650 RPM and the choked idle speed is 1500.

    well it has a remanufactured stock carb on it, and a few years ago i put it on, like when i was 16 or 17, and i knew nothing about carbs, still really dont but im more willing to learn. well i sort of gave up on it, some times i could get it to start and sometimes not, when i could it would barely run. once it got hot and stalled out i would have to wait like 15 mintues before it would start again??? so i am actually really lost so any input would be wonderful thanks
