97 MTD (Tecumseh) snowblower dieseling

Fuel or carburetor? How do I adjust rich lean? Where is it and which direction is which?

to the forum retired

What exactly is it doing that you're calling dieseling ??

What engine does it have ?? 5hp, 8hp, ...
What are the engine model and serial numbers ??
Is the carb adjustable or fixed ??

Can you post a photo of the carb ??

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Sounds like you figured out the bottom one is your idle mix screw screw. If it keeps giving you trouble you may neeed to drop the bowl and clean things up.....
