Rich or lean

Recommended Posts

Is there a general rule of thumb such as, hesitation, stuttering = rich, popping = lean. Or something like this? I think I'm lean and running hot. How can I tell? :cry:

Thanks, Mike -

There are no absolute rules to go by.

Pull the choke out with the motor at normal running temperature to see what a rich idle and "sputter" runs like.

A lean setting is usually hotter running and has a dull, weak feeling and hesitates when slowly rolling the throttle open. The engine will pause when it seems like it should speed up.
