hi, i was given an older craftsman 2 stage snowblower with a 4 stroke 5hp engine. the carb seems to have 2 needle valves. one goes up through the fuel bowl into the main jet and the other is a horizontal one going into the side. what is the basic setting for these? any help is appreciated.

Tighten them both all the way in gently so you don't damage them.

1.5 turns out on bottom.

1 turn out on side.

well, i cleaned the carb and adjusted it and the engine runs smooth and idles good. after reading other posts i found a link to a tecumseh repair manual which shows the proper position of the fuel bowl as well as everything else you need to know. i sure am glad i found this site. i am almost looking forward to another snowstorm to see how she does.
