The s8d in my bolens is running very rich. Aside from the obvious symptoms ( such as black smoke, the smell), everytime i run it for a little while it won't start back up unless I pull the plug and clean it. How do I lean it out so it doesn't run so rich?

Adjust the main jet but go a little at a time. Also you might check the float it could have a hole in it and not floating.
