Pretty simple if lean it's going to surge. If its Rich it's going to smoke and run rough just start your blower up and start giving it choke that will be how it acts running rich.

Are you talking about at idle or full throttle?

I'm talking full throttle. If it's as simple as Snowbelt said, then that's easy enough.

if slightly closing the choke smooths out its running lean, if it kills it, then it was running rich.
