S200 RPM setting

I have a 1982 Toro S200. I just rebuilt the carb and it is starting up the best it ever has since I have owned it (about 10 years). My question is, what is the correct RPM range? On my 2 cycle mowers it's between 3100-3300, but on this blower it seems too low and it smokes a lot at that setting. I've set it by ear and have gotten no smoke and better running, but I'm at about a range of 3600-3800. Anyone know the specifics for these old Tecumseh 2 strokes? Thanks in advance!

Here ya' go. Almost anything you'd want to know about Toro single stage snowblowers. The max RPMs are covered in the Engine Applications section.

Thanks bwdbrn! I got it dialed in perfectly last night at around 4000 RPM. I know that it isn't max, but it sounds really good, doesn't smoke, and I know I won't blow the engine!

No problem guys. I think I'll make a sticky of it over in both the repair and Toro forums.
