Idle Adjustment

Recommended Posts

I understand for the most part how to adjust the air/fuel screw to achieve the correct idle, but one thing I'm uncertain of is the position of the throttle adjustment screw.  Should it be backed all the way out when setting the idle?  How do I determine whether I need to adjust the air/fuel screw or the throttle screw?  Is it a balancing act between the two?

Set base idle speed.

Adjust mixture for fastest idle.

Readjust Base Idle.

Add just mixture for fastest idle,

Repeat. Etc.

Yes it's a balancing act.
