It would be plugged so it would have to be removed. It basically moves the jet needle up and down when you turn it. If you choke it partly will it accelerate?
There is no acceleration with partial choking and the muffler and output port are clean. There doesn't appear to be another adj. as I can neither find it on the carb nor in the carb schematic. I'll take a look at the seals this weekend. Could this be an ignition problem? Overall, the unit runs normally re starting and idling and never dies. It just wont accelerate. Thanks again for the help.
