I need to go find some. What kind of idea do you suggest? Running to through the carb bolt?

If you look at the picture above, it will give you an idea.

It's the same thickness as the other tins. Any source you can

Ok I have a question about each screw on the carb.


I'm assuming the bottom screw at bowl is the main adjustment, the one above the bowl is the low idle screw, the one near throttle shaft is the idle adjustment.

Right?

Does the top idle adjustment has to be adjusted?

The drive belt is pretty tight. Should it be since clutch is not pushed in?

It does have to be adjusted per engine to give you an idle fast enough to keep the engine cool.  Best way to adjust it is with a tach to really make sure it is right, unless you don't plan on idling it for long periods. 

 

The other way you want it adjusted is so it will pick up from those low RPMS and get to the high (operating) RPMS without missing.  Tecumsehs usually want to be idling a little faster than other brands to do that right. 

 

What model engine are you working on?

Here are the videos of my belt smoking. What could be the issue?
