    Hi folks
    Jim here. I just found/accessed this forum for the first time. What a powerful resource for those who are info freaks. I like to get lots of input and see if I can keep from reinventing the wheel on little problems I am having.
    Thanks in advance for responding.
    My 8yr(?) old Kubota with Kawasaki fc420v engine is "loading up" I believe is the term I have heard. Running rich, black smoke out the exhaust, sounds 'labored' under load, backfires through muffler when engine shuts down. Bought new air filter yesterday; will try it as soon as I get off work.
    Question; how do you adjust fuel mix on this carb. or is that the wrong approach?
    Please advice.
