Needle Valve: Run vehicle with the throttle fully open a few times over long straight course to observe vehicle speed. Close needle valve 15° and repeat run. Gradually close needle valve in subsequent runs to achieve highest speed taking care not to close needle valve too far and overheat engine.
Metering Needle: With the engine running, close throttle and allow engine to idle for about 5 seconds then fully reopen throttle. Turn metering needle clockwise 15-30° to lean mixture if excessive smoke is observed, or counterclockwise 15-30° to richen mixture if engine speeds up momentarily and then cuts out abruptly.
Throttle Stop Screw Adjustment: Turn counterclockwise to reduce throttle opening if engine runs too fast with throttle closed.
