(a) Adjust the throttle adjusting screw (1) until the correct idle speed is obtained (see vehicle manufacturer's tuning data). (b) Turn the jet adjusting screw (2) clockwise to enrich or anti-clockwise to weaken, until the fastest speed is indicated; turn the screw anti-clockwise until the engine speed just commences to fall. Turn the screw clockwise very slowly the minimum amount until the maximum speed is regained. From this setting adjust the mixture screw according to the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.
(c) Check the idle speed, and readjust it as necessary with the throttle adjusting screw to obtain the correct setting

2

Vehicles with emission control. Using the exhaust gas analyser, check that the percentage CO reading is within the limits given by the vehicle manufacturer. If the reading falls outside the limits given, reset the jet adjusting nut/ screw by the minimum amount necessary to bring the reading just within the limits given. If an adjustment exceeding three flats of the nut/half a turn of the adjusting screw is required to achieve this, then the carburetters must be removed and serviced.
