Warm engine, adjust idle speed first, then hold throttle wide open and adjust high rpm screw to get the highest rpm, then let idle, then hold throttle wide open for a second and let go and then do it again...if it doesn't hesitate then you're good to go!

Hey Guys I Fill Like A Nut. The Newer 420 Carb Cant Be Adjusted Its Preset At Factory. I Took The Thing Into The Shop And All It Needed Was A New Filter. I Spent $35 + Parts For Nothing. I Also Noticed After Running With The Flame Arrestor Out It Was Melting The Plastic Where The Little Tube Stick Out.

Carb can be adjusted....pull the plastic stops out and throw them away....someday after the units gets much older you will need to adjust the carb. Don't take stops out until you need to adjust....
